Students Produce Short Film for Business Excellence Awards
On a rainy day in September, Alfred Ball became a finalist for the North Vancouver Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards in the category of Young Entrepreneur.
While introducing himself to all the other finalists, he was surrounded by a group of enthusiastic Capilano University Students who were there to produce a short film on all the finalists for the awards gala in October.
John and Chris introduced themselves, saying that they chose Lifemoves because they were given only one word to describe each business; ours was “fitness” and it sounded more exciting than some of the others.
After several phone calls and a couple of delays due to difficulty in getting the proper equipment, we arranged to film on a Monday afternoon. They arrived full of enthusiasm, but the last person to use the video recorder forgot to charge the battery. While Charlie went to retrieve a cable and a new battery, John and I discussed exactly what and where we were going to shoot. I had carefully arranged several clients to take part and arrive in 30-minute intervals, however they came almost all at once. An hour later, with patient clients, we were under the bright lights as shooting took place. They had over 30 minutes of video to choose from during editing, so I was both eager and nervous to see the results, but had to wait until the business awards’ gala.
This week we were able to share the results with the public and the wonderful clients who were very patient during our filming session. This video is also the first one we are posting on our new YouTube Channel: Get Moving For Life: Lifemovesca. Post your comments to let us know what you want to see and learn about in 2010.
