I’m President of Co-op Collective Vision, a media education company that has been teaching in schools and at our Summer camps since 2008. I started off in documentary film-making shortly after graduating film-school at Trebas Institute in 2003. I have been teaching video since 2006 as well as making documentaries which I've had screened at Festivals and aired on the documentary channel. My approach to teaching is very hands on while being flexible to the needs of the schools/students.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

Our workshops inspire youth to feel empowered to share and create their own stories by exploring various themes and digital mediums. We focus on hands on learning that is engaging to students and allows them to collaborate and actively participate in the creative process. We make short movies, mini documentaries, music videos and other forms of digital story telling where students get to take home a completed video production at the end of the workshop. Flexible to the needs/wants of the class, we can focus on many different aspects of the film-making process. For students in grade 1 and 2, we focus more on story creation and acting. Grades 3, 4, 5 and 6 can learn the basics in cinematography and video editing. Grades 7 and up can learn all subjects in film-making, including advanced forms of cinematography and video editing. We provide the professional equipment necessary to create high quality videos and give them a taste of what it's like on a film set!
