The odds of 2 childhood friends growing up and not only going into the same industry but the same profession is not common. CCE members James Hebbard and Jonathan Dowler have come a long way from filming and editing their kid skit videos when they were 11 and 12. James and Jonathan have been friends for over 35 years and it was a great night for them this week when they could walk the gold carpet together at the Canadian Screen Awards.
James Hebbard was nominated for his first CSA this year for Best Picture Editing, Documentary for his work on Hunting Nazi Treasure - The Mystery of Rommel's Gold. Jonathan Dowler was nominated for 4 CSA's this year for Best Picture Editing, Reality/Competition for his work on Amazing Race Premiere, Amazing Race Finale, Big Brother Premier and Top Chef Canada.
