BC Was Awesome director Greg Crompton

Greg is typically behind the camera but he got in front of it for one of our episodes this season after he tried to put me in a sketchy airplane and the tables got turned. Enjoy it below. And watch all 22 episodes of our series for free at BCWasAwesome.com. If you’ve got TELUS Optik at home you can also view them there.

The winners of the 20th annual Leo Awards will be announced at a gala on June 3rd at the Hyatt Regency. For a full list of the nominees visit leoawards.com/nominees.
