As It Happened Productions
As It Happened Productions (AIHP) began as an idea in 2014 while Angela was filming her Grandpa’s stories to share with the family and save for the future. The name of the business came from her grandfather saying, “I’ll tell you the story just as it happened!”
Angela and Sheryl met through the University of Winnipeg Oral History Department Associate Accreditation Program. Within weeks, they began their business. Recognizing their mutual love of film, shared approach to gathering and preserving stories and complimentary skill-sets, it was a perfect match!
As It Happened Productions is a proudly Winnipeg-based, female owned and operated business. True to their beginnings, AIHP focuses on:
Capturing the story that important to their clients
Working in an ethical and respectful manner
Understanding and meeting the needs of each person or group
Ensuring that each interview is a comfortable, fun and positive experience
Providing each client with a professional final product
