It’s that time of the year again! Many of our fourth semester students are biting their nails and losing sleep as they try to make some important decisions about university programs and deal with the complicated application process. That made them very appreciative of a visit from 9 former Creative Arts students who came to share their experiences with applications, interviews, portfolios, and life at university in general. Much thanks are due to our terrific grads: Annie-Kim Brais, Lillian Cheung, Spencer Dalton, Andre Dubois, Jason Goodall, Pat Therrien, Camille Gagnon-Chalifour, Bianca Boulay, and Marylene Pivin.

Bert Tougas

Professional cinematographer Bert Tougas recently visited the Filmmaking III classes to give a lighting workshop. Bert has worked as a director of photography since 1987, on television movies and series, including the celebrated “Street Legal”. His practical demonstration of lighting techniques is invaluable for our developing filmmakers!

Some really cool guests for the Film/Video profile!

Recently, Donna Noonan and Janis Lundman were guests in the Film/Video profile’s “Portfolio” class.  Donna spoke in detail about the job of production designer, overseeing locations and set design for feature films and TV series.  And Janis gave the class valuable insight into the process of producing films and television.  The two have worked on the TV series Bliss, St. Urbain’s Horseman, and Durham County, as well as many other productions.

Graduates Come Home!

The Film/Video/Communications profile recently had a visit from former students who were guests in the Portfolio class.  They shared their experiences with our current fourth-semester students, who are all busy thinking about life after Champlain!   The group of grads, who represented 10 different university programs, had plenty of practical advice about the university application process as well as first-hand knowledge about what things are like in the world of higher education.  Our thanks again to Scott Berwick, Annie-Kim Brais, Marianne Desfossés, Camille Gagnon-Chalifour, Amy Hêtu, Chris Jadah, Tyler Jadah, Mike Paolazzo, Paul Richard, and Alexanne Verville for generously giving their time.
