We’ve been incredibly busy the past few weeks putting all the final touches on the Cyber-Seniors documentary. It’s hard to believe that 19 months ago we began filming the seniors and students, and along the way it’s been an exciting trip trying to bridge the generation gap.
From the first lessons where they learned the computer basics and started discovering the Internet, to the creation of the Cyber-Seniors Corner YouTube channel and the inspiring video competition, it’s been a blast hearing their stories, and we’re almost ready to share them with you!
Yesterday we sent off our submission to the Toronto International Film Festival, so we hope we’ll be sharing some exciting news with you in the coming months. With National Grandparent’s Day happening during TIFF, it would be a great way to honour our Cyber-Seniors Stars with a World Premiere at the festival, so wish us luck!!
We never would have been able to make it through these past few weeks without the guidance of our Post-Production Supervisor, Cameron Tingley, and all of the hard work from everyone at Triangle Post. We thank them all for their assistance with the final touches bringing Cyber-Seniors film all together.
Stay tuned for news about upcoming screenings, and hopefully one will be at TIFF!
As always, we encourage more young people to get involved to teach a senior some new skills. We’re always accepting new videos for the Cyber-Seniors Corner YouTube channel, so get those cameras rolling! For more info, check out our “Get Involved” page.
Bye for now!
