CSAC plot 10th anniversary video.

csac_nobackground-bwThe Charlotte Street Arts Centre announces that Matt Carter has been selected as the winner for the Seeing Charlotte video contest. Carter wins a prize of $600 towards the production of his proposed video project as well as a free membership with the New Brunswick Filmmakers’ Co-op. The completed production will be debuted at the Charlotte Street Arts Centre’s Birthday Bash on March 21st, 2015 as part of the 10th-Year Anniversary Celebration.

About his upcoming project, Carter explains, “In the time I have spent in the Charlotte Street Arts Centre, both as a tenant and as a guest, I have come to notice the distinct “sound” the building has. One person can walk through the halls and their footsteps echo loudly through all levels of the building. In essence, the building is as much alive with one person as it is with 20, 50 or 100 people. And then there’s the dance studio… about sound! I would like to present the building as a living, breathing structure through a unique video concept.

By pairing recorded sound of the various classes and events with the shots of the empty halls and studios, I believe the building’s character can be represented and highlighted in a video presentation that engages and inspires the audience while focusing their individual imaginations on the many things that already happen within the walls of this great building and the countless other things the future holds.”

The Charlotte Street Arts Centre congratulates Matt Carter on his fantastic idea and contest win. It is with great excitement that we anticipate the upcoming video, Seeing Charlotte by Matt Carter, with an official screening at the centre upcoming in May 2015.
