Recently I shot and edited 4 videos for Choices for Youth, a non-profit organization based in St. John’s, Newfoundland that performs outreach and engagement services for youth in our community.
Impact Construction is a social enterprise that teaches youth skills in the construction field so that they can obtain work in the construction field. Having the opportunity to make videos for this organization was so rewarding because I was able to learn about the difference this organization makes in the lives of youth every day. These programs need our support and the return on any business given to them goes a long way so if you are ever in need of construction work get in touch with them :).
Finally!! Take a look! This includes films I have directed as well as one commercial video shoot I shot last year. There are works here from St. John’s, Prague and China! It’s fun to have a little trip down memory lane with these actually :).
I had a chance to go to Sheshatshiu and Goose Bay in Labrador with the Nickel Independent Film Festival to be a mentor with Montreal animator, Glenn Gear. We taught the kids the basics of storytelling and animation then filmed a short animation with them using paper puppets they created!
What does this organization do for its members? United Way and Exxon Mobile team up to share the story of Rainbow Riders and how they have changed the lives of their members since opening 20 years ago. Take a look at the video we created this past September!
I’ll be doing a 5 minute documentary on local St. John’s drag queen, Irma Gerd!! We will be shooting her performance on Dec. 14th at Treble Lounge around 8pm so if you want to come join the audience you are more than welcome! It’s going to be super fun! 🙂
This is the first time Canada’s a Drag has come to Newfoundland and it will be nationwide!!!! Also, the season starts airing in January 2019 so stay tuned as I will post info about the time/date this episode will be on air!
