Façade partnered with Render Media in Critique Week, an exclusive opportunity for Façade Academy students.
Critique week connects with teens through video in 2 ways: as a platform for self-expression and awareness of community issues.

Critique Week 2017 One Pager Second Draft.pdf

 
Last year’s hot topic is Cyber-Bullying. Participants were challenged to create a 2-3 minute video presentation tackling this important issue. 
Students developed skills that were essential for their portfolio development. As a bonus, their videos were used as a project toward their portfolios.
The videos were aired during the Critique Week Showcase Event on June 12 at the Pierre Berton Library, where the finalists were given an opportunity to showcase their hard work, and where the Challenge winners were announced!

Congratulations to Cassandra Barresi for being selected the winner at this year’s Critique Week!

Throughout the Critique Week Showcase Event, students learned first-hand from working professionals in media, which included: Vanessa Galle, David DiBenedetto, Jenny Arena, Adam Feigen and Mike Sorgnese  & more!
Attendees gained insight into Creative Development Skills, Creative Directing, marketing, branding, conveying a message through art forms and critiquing.
.

The benefits of this event were endless and resulted in an impressive addition to the student’s personal and/or academic portfolio.

 
 
Façade will be once again collaborating with Mike Sorgnese from Render Media next year toward Critique Week, as it grows larger and provides students with more creative opportunities.
