A teacher’s perspective on the Nickel First Takes School Tour!

 

Here is Cloud River Academy’s Katherine Valentine-Johnson talking about her students experience in working with the Nickel’s First Takes School Tour! This is where we went around Newfoundland and mentored students in making a documentary on the topic of their choice! These documentaries will be screened at the Nickel festival in June!

SALT X MIKEGOUGH

Here is a video I recently shot for The Shop SALT this past week! They did a collaboration  with local St. John’s, Newfoundland artist, Mike Gough to make wearable art (how cool?!). This was such a fun video for me to shoot and edit, everyone was so great to work with and I can’t wait to see how this clothing line does because it drops TODAY!!

Cinematography Masterclass with Maya Bankovic !

I had the pleasure of attending a masterclass with Maya Bankovic as part of the St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival‘s Scene and Heard conference. It was great!! I got to use some really nice equipment and take time to work on lighting and camera movement. I loved learning from Maya, she’s a very talented & seasoned expert in film and I can’t wait to apply what I have learned from this class. <3. (Photos by Ashley Harding Photography).

 

 

The Nickel Film Festival’s School Tour

I recently went on a school tour sponsored by Reel Youth and The Nickel Independent Film Festival. We went to 4 different schools in central, western and norther Newfoundland to be film mentors for students making documentaries.

These films will be screened as part of the Nickel Film Festival in June so stay tuned for updates! I will be editing one (maybe two) depending on my schedule and if I can squeeze it in! Take a look at some of our behind-the-scenes photos. Some were taken by the students themselves!
