Serendipity means a “fortunate happenstance” or “pleasant surprise”. At Astonished! we had been looking for ways to develop our skills at telling our stories in video, but not finding what we were looking for. Then, unexpectedly, while on retreat in East End, Saskatchewan, Brenda MacLauchlan found exactly what we wanted. While reading the community newsletter in Jack’s Cafe she came across an article about The Grasslands Project. This is a National Film Board documentary project about the grasslands and as part of their work they are holding media clinics to help people turn story into video. Scott Parker, director of the project, readily accepted the invitation to host a media clinic with Astonished!
We are delighted with the results. Check out the terrific video about our media clinic. Big shout out to Scott Parker and Robin Schlaht for your work with us.
