Alumnus Dominic Fegan (2001-07) wrote and produced Paper Thin - a comedic short about an academic preparing to defend his thesis on Sherlock Holmes when he gets caught up in solving his own mystery. It has since screened at nine film festivals across North America and will be airing on CBC on September 20th (sounds like it will be midnight so set your DVR and record it!) as part of the REEL East Coast Showcase, a programme highlighting filmmaking talent in Atlantic Canada. The film was made in Halifax through AFCOOP’s Film5 programme and had around a 30-person crew of local film industry workers and trainees. Dominic made the film with good friend, Jeff Parker (the director), and the film was shot at the University of King’s College. They are now working on their next projects with their small production company, Make Your Day Productions. Dom is studying design part-time at NSCAD. Congratulations, Dom!
