Fall 2015 Newsletter

Dear Delta Community,

We’ve had a fantastic launch to  the school year here at the Delta Film Academy! Already great work has been created by our students and we are excited to see the future for these artistic film makers. Production students have been diligently working at creating their own one minute short film narrative projects under the expert guidance of Garnet Campbell and Sandra Almond. The actors have been steadily building their skills and confidence on camera with their specialized instructors Richard Cox, Alex Zahara and Cameron Bancroft. In addition to visiting the set and participating in a live taping of “Some Assembly Required”, we also had the luxury of welcoming some of the cast into our studios for an intimate panel interview. A big thank you goes out to Travis Turner, Dylan Playfair, Harrison Houde and special guest star Mackenzie Gray for inspiring and sharing some of your passion with us. We also want to thank Simon Jori for sharing some of his camera talents with our production students in a specialized workshop and Ashley Foreshaw for demonstrating and teaching us some FX Makeup techniques to use in our films. Furthermore, a big thank you to Rob Kirbyson for sharing with us the trials and revelries that Directing projects in the industry presents. We are so honoured to welcome such passionate professionals to our space and continue to grow and learn as a community of storytellers.

Also new this fall, we welcomed a new member to our family of instructors! We sadly said goodbye to Braeden Saucy as the Production Assistant of the film academies, as he has moved on to further film study at Capilano University, and welcomed Mo Barrett onboard. Mo is a recent grad of Langara College’s Film Production Program and we are absolutely thrilled to have him here. His passion challenges the students in their craft!


Overall, a stellar start to the year with many more learning moments on the path ahead. Look for our upcoming creative projects to be posted and our work for the Delta Burns Bog Conservation Society. We can’t wait to see what’s in store through the winter!

Work hard. Tell Stories. Be Kind.
