Lights, camera, action! College welcomes first class of film studentsFriday, September 27, 2013 by: SooToday.com Staff
Where possible, this new full-time offering will take advantage of the unique opportunities that the Sault, Algoma region and College provide.
Support from local industry for this new program has been outstanding with numerous opportunities for students to connect with the community.
The first of these partnerships include the Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre (CBHC) where students will gain a hands-on, work placement opportunity to produce a series of videos for the Museum and their website.
“We are excited to be working with the CBHC on this initiative. The Digital Film Production program is structured around real world, experiential learning as well as incubating future businesses for the graduates,” states Candice Day, instructor in the Digital Film Production program. “Aside from community outreach, students will be learning skills in Screenwriting, Producing, Directing, Cinematography, Editing and Sound. The focus of the program is Film and Television Production with an emphasis on the Storytelling aspect of filmmaking.”
In addition to the College’s new Health and Wellness Facility, the students will be enjoying a new Production Lab and Post Production Suites.
