AHA MEDIA ‘s First “Holiday Themed” Film in Vancouver Downtown Eastside with LifeSkills Centre members

December 15, 2009 1 comment

AHA MEDIA began producing their first “Holiday Themed” Film  in Vancouver Downtown Eastside with  members of LifeSkills Centre – a drop in centre run by PHS

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

AHA MEDIA is thankful for the opportunity to make a film through great support from our Artistic Mentor Christoph Runne, staff at LifeSkills Centre and PHS who provides us space,  high end cameras and gear as well as ongoing training in Art, Media and Filmmaking! :)

Producing Short Satirical/Parody films is one of the reasons why AHA MEDIA came together in the first place! :) – To do positive community engagement while educating others on the social justice issues of our Downtown Eastside neighborhood

Lights, Cameras, ACTION! :)
