Darlington Mediaworks at Targa Newfoundland
We were at Targa Newfoundland from 2004 through 2007. Although we only filmed on the last several days of 2004, we shot the entire event in 2005, 2006, and 2007. Each of those years, we typically produced a documentary, a party tape, a promotional video, and customized team documentaries.
The documentary tells the story of that year’s event and includes footage from several routes each day along with interviews, social events and more. Anyone can purchase the documentaries.
The party tape is made for the participants and is played at the awards banquet that closes the event on the final Saturday of the event. The goal is highlight the amazing, and especially the embarassing, footage that we capture. It is available only to current and former participants.
We’ve made several promotional videos for the Targa Newfoundland organization that either highlight the fun to be had by participants or the business opportunities by sponsors. The most recent promotional video for participants, done for the 2008 Targa Newfoundland, is available above.
