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!

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!

Flight of the Fisherman has been selected by the Nickel Film Festival :)

Flight of the Fisherman Preview from Tin Bird Productions on Vimeo.

Yayyy!! Come see “Flight of the Fisherman” at the Nickel Film Festival for it’s North American premiere! The festival runs June 20-24th this year and it’s a lot of fun to attend. This film was shot, edited and directed by me (Lian Morrison) on the Li River in China and it was my first documentary I ever did. Shooting documentaries is my favourite thing to do and I’m working on shooting more this year and next in Newfoundland.

Also note: this will be a Canadian premiere for this documentary, how fun!!
