The video portrait of the VCA Class of 2015 made a huge splash at the 2015 DSA graduation!
We’re eager with anticipation to see where these ambitious, talented, and thoughtful seniors go. But for now, we’re content embracing this fun and bittersweet work of art they’ve left for us all.
In the event you’ve been living under a rock, the Cinema department has been working diligently with the Orchestra department to create a night of amusement, drama, and terror to kick off the Halloween season! What does that mean? Well, On October 15th, you’ll have two chances to enjoy student made silent films nurtured with a deft touch of live orchestra! That’s right, live orchestra.
Come through this Wednesday at 5pm or 7pm to share the experience and support the Denver School of the Arts community. We are anticipating a large crowd and tickets will sell out. If you wish to avoid disappointment, you may buy your tickets in advance.
And for all you wonderful Cinema majors who occasionally read this blog, remember this event is required to attend. 🙂
Here are the details in clear fashion:
Not So Silent Night
Denver School of the Arts

The orchestra will be conducted by the studious Dr. Enrique Lasanski and performed by DSA middle and high school orchestra students. The films were created by the 1st half of the high school Video Cinema Arts production course.
Please excuse my late posting but you may remember a few weeks ago we asked parents to volunteer time to help fix/clean up our studio – I’m proud to announce Mission Accomplished! As you can see, everything was black and white and rather hard to look at before we stepped in, so we strapped on our sweatbands, ripped 2×4’s out of the grid, masterly labeled all our equipment, and ousted the junk! Needless to say, a huge thank you to Carrie, Bruce, Jimmy, Chip, and students Brigitte and Jimmy for taking time out of their weekend to help us out.
Because of your help, we were able to shoot a student film in the studio which will be premiering at our Not So Silent Night event on October 15th. Be sure to add it to your calendar as it’s bound to be one of the greatest events VCA/Orchestra departments have put on to date! Silent films + Live orchestra = Sensory Delight! I’ll have a separate post with more behind the scenes coming soon.
Next mission, building a sound booth a.k.a. Project Sound Off!

If you haven’t heard yet, I’m offering after-school Private Lessons for all VCA students! This gives students the opportunity to focus on one of many aspects of filmmaking just as you would an instrument. I’ve attached a flyer with areas of focus and other details; feel free to email or call me with any questions or for consultation.
Thanks for checking it out!
