In the first term of the first year of the Bachelor of Journalism, students make a non-fictional film, no longer than 60 seconds, on any topic and in any style they choose.
They do so with a partner. Their only instructions are that the film should be informative, it should be interesting, and it should be original.
In the final class of the term, all the videos are screened in The 60 Second Film Festival.
This year, sitting in on the screening to offer critical reaction were Jeremy O’Neill, Emmy-award winning animator and storyboard artist (Arthur, The Croods) and Jessey Bird (Director, Communications and Content for United Way, Ottawa).
Here is a sampling of some of the best of the students’ work.
