Jordan Wiens | Alumni Update

Recent Alumni Jordan Wiens had a great co-op placement at CanvasPop here in Ottawa.  As his co-op drew to a close he was hired on to produce the video above for one of their new products remade.  We will let Jordan tell how the job took shape:
"Having spent three weeks in placement at CanvasPop, I had learned all of the quirks and qualities of working there. It seemed like our relationship would come to an end until Nazim Ahmed (co-owner of CanvasPop and DNA11) was looking for a video guy to produce a fun video for a new product idea. Andrew Szeto (of Maru the Circle Brand) was actually the one that referred me to the job after being asked by Naz, and then the brainstorming began. 
After I heard the concept of the product my brain started buzzing. Remade takes wasted canvas from defects or the end of canvas rolls that don't get used, and turn them into savvy art wallets. Not only do they help their green footprint, but the wallets are produced by local immigrant work charity EcoEquitable and all of the profits go to charity: water. It really ties in with my philosophy of giving back and will hopefully inspire others to do the same."
As everyone in his Multimedia class knows Jordan is quite the director, he definitely lived up to his nickname "Scorsese".

So to see more of his great films check out his site, one of our personal favourites Bruyère to Percy. While there check out a project that is close to his heart Giving Back an amazing series of skateboard images.

Edward Burtynsky Talk

Tonight we had the pleasure and the privilege of attending the Edward Burtynsky talk at the Museum of Nature on his series Oil.  Tickets were hard to come by and the place was packed.

It was great to hear Burtynsky talk about his process, the stories behind the images and his views on the environment and humanity's affect on it.  We also got a peak into his next still and motion series Water which looks amazing, and of course got a first look at the Ottawa showing of Oil.

Thanks to the Museum Of Nature for putting on a great talk and show.  For those who love photography go see Oil it runs until September 2, 2013.
