Grade 11 student, Eva Redmond, arrived at King's-Edgehill School from Gander, Newfoundland last September with her camera and her cornet in hand. Within a couple of weeks, she became a lead player in every KES band, took center stage with the ensemble of our production of Mamma Mia!, and, won an internal promotional video contest for her piece on the opportunities that KES has to offer perspective new students. She also co-founded and rekindled a photography club on campus that has amassed quite a few like-minded shutter bugs. Last week, Eva submitted a 'short' video in the Halifax FIN Kids Film Festival. Her video is focused on The Arts and how they are valued by all and fill a necessary need in life's fulfillment. She was delighted to get immediate news from the competition committee that she passed the semi-finals and that her film would advance to the finals. Last weekend, Eva attended the Festival viewings and walked away a Winner! Eva just might be giving Steven Spielberg, Kathryn Bigelow, and other producers/directors some competition in the near future! Please take the time to view her video; I am certain that you will be impressed too. Congratulations, Eva!
