NAIT digital cinema students get real-world experience shooting music video
NAIT Digital Media and IT students will get real-world work experience creating a music video while making a direct contribution to Alberta’s roots music scene. As part of their year-end project, students in the program’s digital cinema stream are producing a video for the song It Ain’t Nuthin by Calgary-based musician Craig Moreau. It will be shot in NAIT’s new film studio under the supervision of NAIT instructors.
The students are being mentored by music video director Michael Maxxis, a two-time MuchMusic Video Award (MMVA) winner, six-time MMVA nominee, and two-time Juno Nominee, and cinematographer Peter Wunstorf, who has photographed 11 successful American television pilots and almost a dozen Canadian feature films. In 2011, Wunstorf shot the first season of AMC’s critically acclaimed series The Killing.
Visuals for media will include students preparing the set, complete with a “post-apocalyptic derelict house.” Students, instructors and mentors will be available for interviews. Craig Moreau will not be in attendance for the media event.
