As the major creative assignment for the first term of their first year in the Bachelor of Journalism, the students of JOUR1001 work in teams of two to make a non-fiction film, no longer than 60 seconds. The choice of subject matter is entirely up to them. In the last class of the term, their work is screened in The 60 Second Film Festival. This year, feedback on their creativity was provided by Jessey Bird, Director of Communications and Content for United Way, Ottawa, and filmmaker Amen Jafri, creator of the series The Secret Lives of Public Servants.
Here is a sampling of some of the students’ best work. Enjoy!
