Engaging your team with what they need to know - when and where they need to know it

the Arts

As both a company and a collection of people who specialize in various artistic areas, we take an immense amount of pride in our work within the local, national, and international art communities. Here’s a look at some of the recent projects we’ve been involved in.

The Dr. Murray Frum Collection

Dr. Frum grew up in Niagara Falls, ON, and currently sits as the Chairman of the Frum Development group. He is also a member of the Art Gallery of Ontario Board of Trustees and a long standing supporter of the Gallery. With his donations and contributions from his personal collection, Dr. Frum has been at the forefront of the Transformation campaign within the AGO. With Dr. Frum known particularly for his love of collecting African and Oceanic sculptures and art, the Frum Collection at the Art Gallery of Ontario contains more than 80 individual pieces of work mostly dating from the 10th to the mid-20th century. Recently Dr. Frum was able to donate Corpus, a 5 foot, 6 inch bronze statue created by Bernini around the year 1650. It becomes one of only four Bernini Sculptures in the Canadian Public Collection, and will remain one of the significant pieces from the Old Masters Collection.

At Engage we’ve been hard at work with Dr. Frum to create a documentary featuring his collections of art both in his private residence and at the AGO.

Fashion

We’ve taken our specialized talents on the road to New York and Tokyo to cover multiple Fashion Weeks. We’ve also been involved in our home grown Fashion Week here in Toronto. We go backstage to conduct interviews and get the complete perspective on the events from everyone – designers, hair and make-up artists, dressers, show co- ordinators, models, stylists, PR people and fans. Most of these events have been captured in a documentary style of footage, but we’ve also captured and produced beauty shots for magazines such as Elle Canada, Flare, and Fashion, and for high profile shows like Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein.

We are One Jazz Project

In 2009, we began an in-depth documentary looking to focuses on multiple aspects of a program. We gathered hundreds of hours of footage covering interviews, choir practices, and the 2010 Koerner Hall concert – all of which spanned locations from Toronto to New York. Combining beautiful footage and our private interviews we’ve explored the life of Jazz Legend Barry Harris, the Apprenticeship Model as a means of passing on knowledge, and the We Are One Jazz Project which brings together master Jazz Musicians and “at-risk” children.
