We started OwlBox because of…
The good ol’ hockey game became the reason OwlBox exists today. Knowing our background in film, tv, and video production a teammate asked our Founder, Ryan Northcott, if he could do a 3 year time-lapse of a tank farm in Canada.
Naturally, Ryan said, “of course,” and the rest was history. Except it wasn’t, we had to figure out how that could be done. Unhappy with the current state of the construction camera market we wanted something better.
OwlBox was born, with higher-quality photos, cloud connectivity, and solar power – meaning we didn’t need to visit the site to change out SD cards or update schedules.
Today, OwlBox operates across Canada and the United States all because of…
When not eating ramen, Eric Giesbrecht is managing the day-to-day operations of OwlBox as Co-Founder. Eric is the brains (and the braun) behind the set-up, installation, maintenance, and planning that goes into each OwlBox out in the field. He’s also a producer at MEDIAPOP Films and a barely-awesome guitar player.
As OwlBox’s Co-Founder, Ryan does more than just take the same photo over and over again. He’s an accomplished actor, director, producer, editor, photographer at MEDIAPOP Films, and middling hockey player. Ryan has spent his entire adult life in the entertainment industry creating content from in-front and behind the camera. He’s obsessed with finding the creative in the most mundane of things which accelerates the driving force behind OwlBox.
Our core beliefs drive our focus to create time-lapse images and videos for those who put their trust in us. We recognize that every project is monumental and these beliefs guide to serve it better.
