Real People of Vancouver – Episode #4 Street Script [Video]
Vancouver, BC – In the world of reality television it’s become difficult to decipher what is actually real from made up. With characters like The Real Housewives of Vancouver bringing their brand of “reality” to the market, what is left for those unique individuals who aren’t defined by how expensive their handbags are or who’s spouse is having an affair?
The Real People of Vancouver is a monthly documentary series that explores some of the most unique and underrated people in the City. The series is the brainchild of Joseph Klymkiw, founder of Joi Productions.
“I was sick of TV’s gross misrepresentation of who is “real” in Vancouver,” says Klymkiw. “Real to me is someone who does what they love and keeps doing it. When I walk through this city I see people who live this out daily. They may dress wacky and sound crazy, but they are working and living with passion. They’re not perfect, and they don’t try to be. They are unapologetically real. These are the people who inspire and intrigue me. These are the people of Vancouver, the ones whose stories deserve to be told.”
