"Applications Are Now OPEN for our Teen Digital Media Summer Camp!
We're offering a digital media summer camp for high school students this July, called Tomorrow’s Master of Digital Media Program (TMDM). We thought that you might know someone that might be interested: thecdm.ca/program/tmdm
Started in 2008, TMDM is a 2-week intensive summer camp, happening July 9 - 20, 2018.
The camp is designed for students entering grades 9-12 with artistic or technical interests who want to explore educational and career opportunities in the games and digital media industry.
20 spots are available for this summer and applicants are offered a seat on a first-come, first-served basis.
Tuition is $1100 per student. Partial bursaries may become available for students who require financial support.
Last summer was a lot of fun and the faculty and industry guests were blown away by the quality of work produced by the students."

Local man Mark Truelove has been working for several years on adding colour to old black and white photographs, starting with WW1 as part of the "First World War in Colour" project by the Vimy Foundation, and now just general life. (Click on the link, the sliders way of displaying them is pretty awesome)
It seems to make them more realistic, and hopefully impactful, once they are in colour. "When you look at old black and white photos, the past seems very far away." "Once the photos are colourized, the faces look like they may have been in a war last year."

Clever Icelanders, using an idea seen in New Dehli, made the school crosswalk look like it was floating to get cars to slow down "What the?". Story and more pics here. Looks like a fun tourist photo op too.
