Another Exciting Grad Visit!

Graduating students in the Film/Video profile were energized after a recent visit from an illustrious former Creative Arts student, Philippe-Olivier Contant.  We looked at Phil’s delightful film, There’s a Man in the Habit of Hitting Me on the Head With an Umbrella, made while he was at Champlain, then sat enthralled as he shared interesting stories and oodles of wisdom he’s accumulated in the ten years since finishing Creative Arts.
Phil is currently Visual Content Consultant and news photographer at QMI Agency, a role which has brought him to Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Film Grad Visit

Year after year, our wonderful grads come back to visit and share their experiences of life after Champlain with our 4th semester students.  This year ten Film/Video students came and generously answered questions about the university application process, their plans for the future, and lots more.  Our heartfelt thanks to Andrew Assaf, Marc Andre Cloutier, Marina D’Apice, Andre Dubois, Anne-Sophie Labelle, Daphnee L’Ecuyer, Lydia Levasseur, Marianne Paquette, Maude Tchang Leith, and Arnaud Vivier.

Low Class

Here’s this year’s Portfolio class production from the 2012 graduating students in Film/Video/Communications profile.  It’s inspired by the Elvis Presley musicals of the 1950’s and 60’s, and stars our own Elvis lookalike Andrew Assaf.  Andrew is lip-syncing to an original song, “Low Class”, recorded and performed by Creative Arts students including a talented singer in our first year group, Avery Billingy-Thompson.  You might think we’re low class, but we could teach you a thing or two!
