Filmmaker and heritage advocate Jack Walton will present some insight into his current documentary film project, a short film based on the history of Broadway Avenue in Saskatoon. Mr. Walton’s presentation will explore the process of developing the concept, the design of the story and structure and how he incorporates both older and younger voices in telling the story. As well, his recent documentary series on Main Street Saskatchewan will provide another example of Heritage film making. A New Brunswicker by birth, he has comfortably called himself a ‘prairie maritimer’ for half a life time.
Jack’s experience includes writing, producing and directing public affairs, documentary and series television. He studied at the Norman Jewison Producers Lab. Credits include television series For Art Sake(Global), Heartbeat of the Land(APTN), Student Press(CBC, PBS), Agro Issues (SCN) and documentaries including Allan Sapp’s Place, A Portrait of Joe Fafard, The Gift of Health, The Northern Saskatchewan River Gathering and Regeneration on Main Street Series. His community activities include extensive volunteer work in the not-for-profit section.
