Toronto – The Directors Guild of Canada presented its 2014 DGC Honorary Life
Member Award to SIM Group President and CEO Rob Sim at the annual DGC Awards
Gala in Toronto. The award is presented each year to an individual, member or
non-member, whose outstanding contribution to the industry has had a major beneficial
impact on the Guild and Guild members.
“I am grateful to
the Director’s Guild of Canada for bestowing this prestigious award upon me,”
said Sim. “I am honored yet feel this award is not just about me but also about
all of the talented and devoted professionals in our industry with whom I have
had the good fortune to meet and work beside.”
Rob Sim
co-founded Sim Video (now known as SIM Digital) in 1982 with the intention of
providing film and broadcast producers with the latest in video equipment rentals.
His pioneering leadership helped propel the company forward to become the first
rental house in Canada to offer high definition cameras and production
equipment. His dedication and commitment to new technologies drove SIM to
further expand its services to include digital cinema and broadcast cameras,
lenses and post production tools.

In May 2013, SIM Digital acquired PS Production Services Ltd. one of Canada’s
largest lighting and grip companies, with offices in Vancouver, Toronto and
Halifax. The addition of PS further strengthened SIM’s global position as the
most comprehensive service provider for the motion picture and television
industry. In June 2014, SIM merged with Hollywood-based Chainsaw, uniting one
of the film and television industry’s leading suppliers of production equipment
and post-production services, with one of Hollywood’s most successful
independent post-production facilities.

Rob Sim has been
instrumental in driving the Canadian film and television industry forward. In
2011, he received the prestigious Bill Hilson Award from the Canadian Society
of Cinematographers for “outstanding service contributing to the development of
the motion picture industry.” He continues to stay true to SIM’s founding
philosophy- always delivering the very best equipment, service and support to
each and every client.
