Whites’ 5th Annual Student & Filmmaker Open House Dazzles Students & Emerging Filmmakers with One-Of-A-Kind Showcase

On Saturday, October 3rd, over 200 students and emerging filmmakers visited William F. White Centre, Etobicoke’s world-class production support complex, for a unique opportunity to interact with the latest state-of-the-art movie-making technologies and innovations.

This one-of-a-kind event featured an uplifting speech by Whites’ Chairman/CEO Paul Bronfman, and a stellar lineup of guest speakers including Academy Award Winner & Kino Flo inventor, Frieder Hochheim, along with Project Manager, Luke Van Osch and Creative Director, Stefan Grambart from the recent Emmy-winning studio Secret Location. In addition, George Willis, President of the Canadian Society of Cinematographers and Jaimy Warner, Executive Director of Raindance Canada each delivered educational speeches about crafting images for the screen and how to use social media to raise attention for your film, respectively.

As well, Unmanned Cinema’s drones took to the skies, showcasing the latest breakthroughs in aerial cinematography. Guests also were able to test out the drones via computer-generated simulation, while discovering the exhilaration of drone flight firsthand. Whites’ Remote Heads and Cranes department was also on display, with looming Technocranes outfitted with cameras to afford emerging filmmakers the chance to experience what it’s like to be behind the lens. Finally, the Whites Interactive Viral Van, was parked nearby, proving that filmmakers can combine both production value and mobility with an impressive package, for those on a tight budget.

The event also featured an interactive dolly display set up, with a Sony F3 Full-HD camera pointing to a collection of illuminated jewels, like something from an “Indiana Jones” movie. These set ups encouraged guests to get hands on experience, while Whites employees demonstrated how gels can create distinct moods and atmospheres.

Throughout the day, students were given an exclusive 10% discount at The Store @ Whites, an offer which is still ongoing today, while getting a firsthand glimpse at the latest in GoPro camera technology. Over $6,000 in grant prizes were also awarded to Mohammad Saadoun, Atul Jain and Shenaz Baksh.

“I can’t emphasize enough how our students appreciate the financial support and recognition your award bestows. The personal and continued commitment of so many individuals to our programs and to students is extremely gratifying.” – Alexandra Anderson, Ryerson University, Chair, School of Image Arts

“My classmates and I had a great time and definitely learned quite a bit about the equipment you have. Your staff was also incredible and very helpful.” – Michael Maddeaux, Student
