Rookie of the Year – Winner
Loïc Salan

I am passionate about of filmmaking and photography. I understand and can contribute to all aspects of a production, from its conception to delivery, but would say my strongest points are camerawork and editing. I am highly competent using my own Canon 5D Mk III, the Sony FS5 and Panasonic AC160. As an editor I mostly use the Adobe Suite, Final Cut Pro and Avid

Rookie of the Year – Runner Up
Jessica Hill

Hey, I’m Jess. I’m an editor and motion graphic designer. My brain has a weird way of constantly juxtaposing images and sounds I hear or see into imaginary narratives or potential film projects. This drives my creative thirst and passion for areas such as editing within film production.

The stories they tell with a limited budget is most impressive.

People’s Choice Award

Voted by the general public using our Facebook Gallery voting system.

As a fresh graduate and ready to become a part of the film industry, for the first year, I will start meeting the requirements of becoming a permittee logbook holder for Directors’ Guild of Canada and start working for my required number of work days. However, I will not let this stop me from creating independent projects on the side and try to explore the combination of my degree in Communication and Media Studies and film to be my source of income in the said year.
