25 Jun Eastdale CVI Documentary
Thank you for supporting the arts! We were provided funding through the Ontario Arts Council for the 2013-2014 school year to do 5 different video projects within the Durham District School Board. Each school received 20 hours of Colin and Carla’s time where they taught students about film making, shared their story as a self employed artist and brought in lots of video gear. Eastdale CVI was one of the schools we worked with. Students in 4 different art classes all learned about filmmaking techniques, camera angles, lighting and then they filmed their own documentary. The film’s theme is how the arts empower the students and improve their lives. All of the material was shot by the students and the final film was edited by Empty Cup Media.
These projects are a lot of work but are incredibly rewarding. With each group there are always a handful of students who thrive with video projects and we’re there to nurture their enjoyment.
