Bryan McNally | Alumni Update

Alumni Bryan McNally, aka Shooter McNally, recently won Best Film and Best Actor at the OIFF 72 Hour Film Challenge for his film Change.  The OIFF 72 Hour Film Challenge is a competition with some pretty interesting guidelines:

1. Film had to include a penny in it
2. Had to include the line "Take a penny leave a penny"
3. Had to use songs from at least 3 local artists (There is some great music in this film!!)
4. Had to feature the number 5 (Fifth Anniversary of OIFF)
5. The theme was Freedom

To top it all off of course it had to be shot, edited and rendered in 72 hours.  The film is also being considered by CBC for a National Indie Short Film Faceoff.  Congrats to Bryan on a great vid and for the win!!

Garry Carter Is Moving On Up

Garry "G-Dawg" Carter is leaving the Photography Program to take over as Acting Chair of General Arts and Science.  For those not in the know, that is a big promotion and something we all feel he greatly deserves.

At the same time it is a little sad for the Faculty, Staff, Student and Alumni as he has helped shape the Photography Program for almost two decades and has seen countless photographers pass through his classes.

Carter you will definitely be missed by all and Filum will never sound the same again.
