RWS was pleased to cover the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival for a second time! Nadya was there last year and captured a full 5-day schedule, and this year was much the same, but considering it was the festival’s 10th Anniversary, an extra boost of excitement permeated the various workshops, screenings and evening concerts. The week started on Tuesday with a Pre-Festival Party for Digging Roots in celebration of their new CD ‘We Are’.

Wednesday was a wrap w/ the Opening Night Party at The Century Room. With the festival in full swing, Nadya began Thursday’s coverage with the Harold Greenberg Screenwriting Workshop facilitated by Karen Walton; next was a celebration of Cape Dorset art with a screening of “James Houston: The Most Interesting Group of People You’ll Ever Meet” by John Houston; Nadya dashed back to the Al Green Theatre for screenings of Tshitashun (Number).

After 2 weeks of straight coding, reviewing images and rebuilding the portfolio… I’m honoured to finally present the new Red Works website! Visitors to the old site will notice that much of the style has remained the same re: colours & branding, but some key features have been added: The entire site has been transferred to WordPress; Two portfolios (BW/ Tints + Colour) highlighting 5 albums each; One new photo “Series” section, currently featuring “Concrete Indians” portraits; Updated “Rates & Services” page w/ redesigned Rate Card (pdfs); Redesigned watermark/ logo stamp; Integrated Calendar; and New Links page; The portfolio galleries feature hundreds of images of landscape, still-life, event coverage, Native musicians, actors/ actresses, role models (379 images total, in 11 different galleries/ ‘digital portfolio books’). There are still a few minor tweaks, but for the most part the site is complete!  Be sure to come back often as RWS celebrates the beauty of our First Nations people. In unity & light, Related Post – Aug. 24th Website Re-launch!

In unity & light, (Note: Visual graphics & images you see during the upgrade may or many not have been created by me. They serve as generic content/ placeholders until the RWS brand and portfolio images are plugged.)
