Bursting with Pride

originally uploaded by Chris Campbell.
Yesterday was Convocation where two years of hard work and fun came to an end with Screen Arts learners graduating at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium. It was a very good day and I am bursting with pride in the accomplishments of the graduates. You can see some photos of Convocation 2006 and get a hint of the excitement.

Applied Arts End of Year Show

Graduation for Screen Arts learners and other Applied Arts graduates from the Halifax Downtown Site is coming up. On Tuesday, June 20 the Convocation ceremony takes place and at 6pm at the Halifax Downtown Site on Granville Street is the Applied Arts End of Year Show. It's a chance for everyone connected with Applied Arts to get together and see lots of the amazing work that has been created in the past year. There is an interesting set that is being built and decorated for specially for the show by some of the graduating Screen Arts learners and there will also be opportunities to see some of the short films produced during the year.

The Benefits of Teaching

I really enjoy teaching and one of the most rewarding parts of it are meeting amazing and talented people and helping them. The end of the year is always a busy, but rewarding time and the end-of-year show is wonderful time to look back on work from the past year. But a surprise this year at the screening were bundles of presents that the students gave Janet and I. The presents were very thoughtful and very much appreciated. I received some of my favourite chocolate, a t-shirt and coffee beans from my favourite coffee shop, a lovely leather-bound notebook, a DVD of the year (that I haven't watched yet), and a hand-sewn Bad Metaphor patch. Thanks to the great students of Screen Arts for the presents, the work and spending so much time with me. You make it all worthwhile.

The Coast - Halifax's Weekly

Carsten Knox has written an article called Mark It for The Coast, which is Halifax's Weekly paper. It's about Jeff, Martha and Jac and the screening that is happening at Park Lane tonight at 7pm. You can read it on the Web or have the old-fashioned print experience as well by picking it up around Halifax.

Screen Arts Screening Tonight!

At 7pm tonight the year-end show It Came From Screen Arts, featuring 20 films from the past year is happening at the Empire Park Lane. Admission is free and you can pick up advance tickets at Video Difference or the NSCC Halifax Downtown Site on Granville Street. It should be a great show and it's a chance to see some excellent short films on a big screen.
