In 2022, Lindisfarne Productions had the opportunity to produce new occupational videos for the Government of Alberta alis initiative.
For years, the alis.alberta.ca website has been assisting Albertans in finding careers that suit their skills, personalities, and life goals by offering practical information on over 575 occupations. Each occupational profile provides information like educational requirements, salary ranges, day to day duties, responsibilities, and working conditions.
For this year’s videos we filmed across the province. Every year we get to speak to unique and interesting Albertans and learn about exciting and innovative careers. This year was no different!
Some of the occupations we covered this year include:

Curators acquire, document, study, interpret, maintain and provide access to collections of artifacts (products of human hands), specimens (natural history items) or cultural heritage items or practices (traditional practices, crafts, language, dance).
