How can I blend the theoretical with the practical in filmmaking? C. Blake Evernden (BFA ’09) Master of Fine Arts – New Media student It was his professors who encouraged MFA candidate C. Blake Evernden (BFA ’09) to continue on after his Bachelor of Fine Arts in new media to complete a master’s degree at the University of Lethbridge. Because of the vibrant creative community at the U of L and the flexibility of the program, he was able to join his visual arts background with his passion for filmmaking. This union between the two art forms has been the driving force behind his research. Today, concept artist, illustrator, storyboard artist, screenwriter, makeup and effects artist, actor and filmmaker are just a few of the accomplishments you’ll find on his CV. Blake’s research and current projects have taken him to places like Toronto and New York, and he is currently working on his third feature film. “The University of Lethbridge has allowed me the space to experiment and grow and try different things and fail and regroup and try other angles as much as possible. Without that latitude I wouldn’t have been able to figure out what was the right way to finish the project I’d started.”
