With film examples and colourful anecdotes from 20+ years in the field, filmmaker Ian Toews tries to get the core of what makes a good documentarian (or if nothing else, entertain you).

His documentary work is primarily concerned with the natural environment and often, its degradation. For Toews' full bio, check out our Special Guests page.

This workshop is presented by and made possible through support from the Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative, a non-profit artist-run centre which supports and assists independent visionary film and video production in Saskatchewan. 

Students are especially encouraged to attend, as the last hour of the workshop will feature an opportunity to meet and have coffee with Ian. We hope to see you there!

Known as the co-creator of Wolfcop, and the man behind each and every one of the character's transformations, Emersen Ziffle has extensive professional experience with make-up, puppetry and practical effects. Watch, listen and learn as Emersen breaks down his practical effects process, and conducts several demonstrations that are sure to leave you impressed and maybe even grossed out.

Besides Wolfcop and Wolfcop 2, Emersen has lent his hand to many Saskatchewan productions, including 13 Eerie, Corner Gas, and Basic Human Needs. Most recently, he worked on the makeup for the reboot of the famous series, Power Rangers. For Emersen's full bio, check out our Special Guests page.

This workshop is presented by and made possible through support from Creative Saskatchewan, which fuels Saskatchewan's creative industries (including film) by investing in Saskatchewan artists and propelling them to create, innovate, expand, and perform in their pursuit of commercial success. 

Students are especially encouraged to attend. We hope to see you there!
