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 Emily Ramsay, Executive Director of the Digi60 Filmmakers’ Festival and creator of the six-part documentary series Vs: Women in Combat Sports, and Liam Mooney, CEO of Jackpine Dynamic Branding and Design.
Here is a sampling of some of the students’ best work. Enjoy!
