One of the most rewarding experiences for me at the Toronto Film School is when I get to take a group of students out on projects and witness the exceptional talent on display.
This is something I personally do often to great reception. For me it reassures all the hard work and dedication put in by our student body but also by our dedicated instructors. It’s in these moments when you witness the immense growth our students have taken in insuring their place within this ever growing industry. So I’ve decided to share some here, in something I’ll call “Toronto Film School on Location”.
On this occasion the student really stepped up and made us proud. I was fortunate enough to bring them to a world class Film Production location, Docville Wild West Movie Set to shoot a promotional commercial piece to be seen by industry insiders around the world. For this occasion, I also extended the learning environment and brought in several heavyweight friends, as well as graduates of the Toronto Film School to share their knowledge and assist throughout the shoot. I will share others in the coming weeks but for now we hope you enjoy these photos and the video from the Toronto Film Schools day at Docville Wild West Movie Set.
