Yeah, the pic’s a little fuzzy, but it was taken quickly in the moment. Above is my attempt of getting NSI’s 2015 New Voices class in a semi-failed Ellen-selfie type of shot.
I visited the class during alumni day this week. Brought back old memories. You see, I was part of the 2013 New Voices class. The program is designed to get Aboriginal youth involved in the Winnipeg film and television industry.
It was nice to see other alumni talk about their current projects, and it was great to reflect and realize just how successful the project is. For Why We Play, everyone involved so far has either been through New Voices, Aboriginal, or has taken a program through NSI. They’re probably dozens of projects worked on every year by New Voices grads.
