From mobile phones and computers to television and movies, screen culture dominates modern culture. Reel 2 Real’s Talent Lab aims to ensure that students are inspired and equipped to analyze, appreciate, explore, create and share screen media. Through film viewing, master classes and production classes, students get to work with, and learn from, some of Vancouver’s top film industry professionals.
