Court métrage / Short movie - Julie Monette Theoret

This is the short 3D movie my god daughter did! We saw it on a big screen lastnight at her college graduation lastnight along with 22 other short movies done by the other grad students. I am so very proud of Julie!

After the ceremonies in the theatre, they had all the graduates another area..where we soon followed. They were all set up individually with their movie poster behind them and their portfolios on tables infront of them, along with their resume's and business cards. Great for anyone in the industry to meet, shake hands with and get info from anyone of these fresh graduates..There was also a live band playing, hors d'oeuvres, wine and other refreshments being served for all. It was such a lovely evening!

Below is Julie with her bf who lives in France. He came to Canada for the special occasion of Julie's graduation. He returns home in a week unfortunately...He once lived in Canada for over a yr but had to return due to visa needless to say, they don't get enough time together but I am so glad he was there to celebrate this evening with her.
I have more photos and a short video on my flickr page of the evening. Just double click on any of these photos to get there if u want to see more.
Bravo Julie ma belle!! I am very proud of you! Chris , Cleo and I all had a wonderful evening and I am so happy to have been there to share this special moment in your life with you!!

My daughter Cleo graduated from college today. I am so proud of her and how far she has come over the last 2.5 yrs she attended college. She has flourished into an artist and grown in maturity both noted by myself and her peers.
This evening was for the 98 art students graduation and their friends and family to enjoy many of the displays and pieces of art produced over the past yr.
CLEO 002
Vingnette , Office caos piece

This year, Cleo was one of only 5 chosen out of 98 students to take part in a provincial exposition.
Winning Students from all colleges across Quebec had all their chosen art projects meet for a weekend long exhibit...they had all expenses payed for that weekend, including many cool workshops to take part in...The sculpter that won her that spot was a machine called "The Money Machine" ..its an odd conveyer belt thing that brings pennies up the ramp to fall into metal hands, that never seem to catch the money in fact..they open at the wrong time....this is on purpose to convey how money falls through our hands, it also seems to just go round and round like society itself with money etc etc, ..

MOney machine
The photo of her in the other vignette she did, pic below also, is one that is Office Caos...It won a price tonight at of only about 5 given out this evening..She is invited to show her work in a real Art Gallery.
Tetes bleues

Below is a blue tarp with her likeness, each student had to do one...was hard to get a good photo of it as it was night, outside...What's interesting is that this is not done with paint, it's all done with diff coloured electrical tape! Yes Tape, all cut pieces to end up looking like a sort of pop art likeness...
She has learned so much , yet there is much more to come! She starts university in fall...for another great adventure towards a BA....
I have loaded a bunch of pics of her work...just double click on any of these here, to go to the flickr page...I can't say I understand all the pieces, or find them all beautiful lol..but they often had specific mediums and/or themes to follow. I hope you enjoy...

This week, we got a very special delivery. A brand spankin new John Deere mowing tractor! To top that was a very generous house warming gift from my Dad!! Merci Papa! 0x0x0x...

The delivery guy thought it was funny that I had my camera for his arrival lol, but hey, some may not think it's a big deal, we sure do!! Since we moved here last summer, Chris has been doing the lawn with a small electric mower..we would joke that we wouldn't see him for 3 days untill it was done...Seriously, it took forever to do it with this yard. Just like I have mentioned before about the driveway...

Summer time = Wow, we have a 6 car driveway!

Winter time= Holy crap, we have a 6 car driveway to remove snow from!

Well having a yard of 23,000 square feet is the same thing in terms of lawn care lol. Chris is like a little boy with a new toy with the thing! So I had to share this short clip of his mayden voyage on his man tractor lol....With his favorite Tilley hat, I call him my Indianna Jones on a tractor lol.

Isn't he cute on that thing lol.....
