On Wednesday, December 12 at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, students in Humber College’s Film and Television Production will show their second-year project, a documentary, at a private screening.
Local Humber Film and Television Production student Shayne Maglay recently had the exclusive opportunity to interview Canada’s Defense Minister, Peter Mackay. Shayne was producing his documentary, The War at Home, a project that does indeed hit close to home. Shayne completed his Basic Military Training and The War at Home is about post-traumatic stress disorder that affects many soldiers who return home from Afghanistan. A behind-the-scenes video of the project can be seen at http://www.humber.ca/news/filmmaker-and-cabinet-minister.
