[music plays throughout] [Benjamin]
We’re here at Bloor Hot Docs Cinema to celebrate
the 2016 Humber Graduate Film Showcase. [Aurelia] So this is
our final thesis project for the year, and it’s gonna be an amazing show,
let me tell you. So many great films.
I’m really excited. [Layla] My film is called
So Long Seu-Yeung, and it’s about a K-Pop, uh, superstar
that is battling, uh, his own, like, gender identity. [Benjamin]
I directed a commercial called BATL. It stands for
Backyard Axe Throwing League. Regardless of, you know,
gender, race, or background occupation, I tried to show that, you know,
throwing axes is for everybody. [Tatevik]
I’m presenting Jacob is Ready, my own written and directed
short movie. The story is about
65 years old immigrant who is facing very difficult
life decision in his life. So he’s about to assist,
uh, physician assisted suicide. But, uh, he has only one regret
in his life. He never had a chance
to go back to his country. [Aurelia] I’m really excited
for my own, Super Moms, because, you know,
it’s a really nice, like, light comedy. This is a story about, uh, a single mom
who’s trying to fit in with the PTA. And she starts to get
a little bit of friction with, you know, the head of the PTA,
you know, the type A, queen bee mom. We get to see their strife
unfold on the screen. [Michael Glassbourg]
The advanced diploma program is in, in terms of hands on programs
across Canada, this is the one. This is the one where people come who really wanna learn
how to make movies, how to make television shows, and want to learn the process
from A to Z and then specialize in the areas
they’re really interested in. One of the things about this program
is that it really is tailored for people who want
to enter the industry. As a consequence,
usually most of our graduates make a seamless transition
from the educational environment into the professional environment. [Benjamin]
I’ve definitely grown, um, in- if I could sum it up in one word,
it’s just confidence. Um, I can now step onto a set and know exactly what is expected of me
and how to execute that job. And that alone gives me the confidence
to get out there in the real world. [Layla] The ways that I’ve grown
throughout the years at Humber has been really trying to determine,
like, where I stand because the program is laid out
in such a way where you really
go through everything. And so the biggest challenge for me
has been, you know, I like all of these aspects,
but where am I the strongest? [Benjamin] My experience in the program
has been great. Every year
has just been a new level of learning. The people in the program
really make it. The teachers are amazing,
uh, but like I said, the people in the actual program
working together – that’s, that’s what
it’s all about. [Aurelia]
Key is that you had to have a team that works
really well together. You need to kinda have a team
that’s able to work and laugh together and really gel well
with each other. [Tatevik] I’m so happy
to graduate from this program ’cause i- it was honour
to work and to study with so many talented people. It was just amazing to see that the story that you had in your mind,
that it’s, it’s also a personal story and is becoming a movie,
and you’re gonna see it in a big screen. It’s a great feeling.
I have sense of accomplishment. [music fades out]
