Name of creator
Ken Jubenvill is a British Columbia film and video director and producer with many documentary and drama productions to his credit, along with theatrical shorts and special event productions. His documentary and publicity work includes productions for the British Columbia provincial government. Among his television drama credits are episodes of “Wind at My Back”, “Lonesome Dove”, “North of 60”, “Danger Bay”, and the “Beachcombers.” He won the Gold Camera Award five times from the International Film Festival in Chicago for “Best Documentary” and “Outstanding Creativity.”
Scope and content
The fonds consists of two series: films and videos produced for the Government of British Columbia under Ken Jubenvill's company JEM Productions, and films and videos produced for private clients. Among the private productions are several titles made for Canawest Film Productions, which exist in no other known format, and a film for EXPO 85 in Tsukuba, Japan. Sponsors of the Canawest films include the BC Telephone Company, the Red Cedar Shingle and Shake Bureau, the Workers Compensation Board of BC, and Global Television. Also among the Canawest Film Productions is the pilot episode for a TV series called "The X Factor" narrated by William Shatner. Under his JEM Productions identity, Jubenvill contracted for some of the EXPO 86 film documentation, including visits by Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Princess Diana. JEM Productions also recorded construction of the Coquihalla Highway, and other publicly funded transportation initiatives such as the Seabus and Skytrain.
