Unsung Voices - Youth Summer Video Production Workshop
The 16th Annual Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival proudly presents Unsung Voices, the festival's first suite of short films by six young Asian-Canadian filmmakers with little-to-no formal filmmaking experience. Light-hearted romance, dark thrills, psychological drama, documentary and experimental nuances are all represented in this daring collection of work.
Reel Asian's inaugural Youth Summer Video Production Workshop, which launched summer 2012, brought together youth who teemed with rich, creative stories but had not yet explored their passion for making films. Through mentorship by industry professionals, hands-on exercises and a crash-course-like production schedule, Unsung Voices is the product of their successful creative expression, teamwork and development as leaders, aspects of which were carefully honed during the Workshop.
WORKSHOP FACILITATOR: Tony Lau
WORKSHOP MENTORS: Gloria Kim (Directing), Monica Mak (Production Management), Sacha Nastili (Sound Composition), Iris Ng (Cinematography), Albert Shin (Editing), Nathalie Younglai (Writing)
