Emmy Award visit

September 30, 2019


The present meets the future at Langara Centre for Entertainment Arts!

On Friday, September 27, 2019, the students and staff had an exciting visit by our very own Advisory Board members, Thomas Schelesny and Mohsen Mousavi, recent winners of the Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Visual Effects (Game Of Thrones, “The Bells”). They talked about their journeys as artists and the paths that led them to their awards. It is fun to think that future awards winners could very well be among the students inspired by Thomas and Mohsen’s visit.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit us!

Thomas Schelesny is VFX Supervisor at Image Engine and Mohsen Mousavi is VFX Supervisor at Scanline VFX. Both are based in Vancouver, BC.
