Earlier this year I met François Savoie, the producer and director of Connection Production’s Pour L’Amour Du Country. As we sat down to talk I didn’t realize I would meeting such an accomplished person. François, a one-time draft pick for the Montreal Canadiens before a meniscus injury led him into TV in 1972. Originally from St. Boniface, Manitoba, François moved to Winnipeg to become a full-time Production Assistant which evolved into becoming a Musical Director. In 1983, he moved to Moncton to start working at Radio-Canada. While working at Radio-Canada he met Patrick Norman in the show Country Centreville and that was when Pour l’Amour Du Country began. This amateur show has evolved over the years into a nationally broadcasted country variety show which airs both on ARTV Network and Radio Canada.
Connection Productions also produces a hockey documentary show called Trajectoires Hockey and is also working on Vague D’Acadie which follows the global popularity of 24 Acadian Artists who are superstars.
Enjoy the video interview.
