In November, we were asked to produce a short informational film by Paul Giles of Anishinabek Employment and Training Services and program manager for Project ENABLE. ENABLE is a unique Aboriginal skills and base-level education program that takes in to account the specific needs of the individual in order for them to overcome the barriers they are facing to employment of education.
He wanted something that could be used as proof of the effectiveness of the program to funders as well as something that could show off the program at trade shows and conferences.
A tight budget allowed for only a two day shoot. Day one was spent filming the program in action at Gull Bay First Nation, about 180km North of Thunder Bay. An early rise and some snowy roads added an element of adventure. Day two was spent conducting interviews at Thunderstone’s studio and filming the Little Bear Singers drum at Anishinabek Employment and Training Services.
Here’s the finished product:
