Following the craziness and uncertainty of the past couple of months (thanks to a certain pandemic), I am thrilled to be back at the Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives! I spent this past year studying Motion Picture Arts at Capilano University, where I was able to explore all the roles involved in the making of a film. Over winter break I was contracted to make a short documentary to preserve the history of the Gibsons United Church, which I just finished and can’t wait to share with the community. This film was a great opportunity to practice the research skills I acquired while working at the museum. Bringing in photos from the archives and newspaper articles from the online database (available on our website!) really brought the video to life. I’m looking forward to being able to welcome visitors to the museum again soon, and being involved with the continued growth of the exhibits. This summer will definitely be different than the last, but I’m certain it will be just as interesting with a lineup of exciting new projects.
I can’t wait to welcome everybody back, even if it’s from six feet away!
