VANarts spring 2011

Just thought I would post a quick video of some of the student work done at VANarts - the Media College I work for in downtown Vancouver B.C. Canada.

I have been working here for over a year now and It has been great seeing the college grow and make changes only for the better. I was pretty amazed with some of the students quality during the recent graduation night. From the Animation department as well as the FX, photography and Game Art. The Acting Classes had an earlier graduation and the Web Design course at the college is brand new for Vanarts.

As we are mid-term with my Term 3 animation story assignments, there is a great creative energy that you can feel as the students develop their senior short stories. Getting them ready to animate. And the new Junior classes are filled with students wanting to learn, to get better.

We are starting to intertwine the different programs, the acting students providing voice work for the animation projects and in turn the acting students getting cast to
any students wanting help with some performance roles for additional reference. So with each group helping each other, the school is very much feeling a part of the same focus. To have the students produce the best possible work.

It's been a good year and looking forward to the next.
Maybe i will see some of you here one day.
