New spot for Broadway Camera and the Canon T4i produced by grads from the Television & Video Production Program. Turned out quite nicely, have a look!
Television & Video Production alumni Ben Hoskyn begins work on his first international feature film:
“As a wealthy businessman nears the end of his life, his three children are faced with the same choice he made – and now regrets. Living in Toronto, Hong Kong, and Vancouver, they each have to decide between devoting their lives to the multinational family business, or breaking away from it in order to live a life their father never could.”
Written and Allan Mackey and directed by Ben Hoskyn, “8 Minutes Ahead” explores themes of greed, materialism, loyalty, ambition, and the moments when all of those elements collide.
Principal photography begins November 2012, on location in Hong Kong, China.
So as you may know, there’s this little sporting event going on in BC right now. There’s a little bit of media coverage and a few athletes have come to town to compete…
The result has been that BCIT is closed-down until March 1st.
Of course, even if we were open, we wouldn’t be getting much work done, seeing as how over 120 of our students and staff are working (and everyone getting paid!) for various media outlets involved in producing programming for the event. From NHK to NBC, CTV to OBS, both students and alumni are working everywhere, doing anything and everything.
More than just a film school…
BCIT – get working!
Additional screening added!
Vancity Theatre – 1181 Seymour St. Vancouver
Normally a colourful, positive, vivacious young woman, Eva is only a ghost of herself when directors Nimisha Mukerji and Philip Lyall begin documenting her life for this heartrending film. She is suffering through the advanced stages of Cystic Fibrosis. She feels as if she is drowning on the inside – lungs so full of mucous each breath is nearly impossible. Eva’s lungs are functioning at minimal capacity as her family and friends helplessly watch her deteriorate. Physically beaten down by her disease, Eva needs a new set of lungs to save her life. She waits – months – for news of a donor.
BCIT Television alumni Justin Cousineau worked to edit this very special documentary which chronicles the remarkable story of a young woman who requires a double lung transplant in order to live through Cystic Fibrosis.
