THOMPSON-OKANAGAN - Two independent film makers under the name TNT Creation have joined the political battle in support of teachers this week with a video showcasing why and how Kamloops residents support B.C. teachers.
The video, shot over two days, features Timo Sargent in front of the camera and Tim Unaegbu behind it. In a post to Facebook Sargent says the video was shot over two days in downtown Kamloops. While a few people declined to share spoken or written words he says nearly everyone wanted to share a ‘heartfelt message.’
“The passion and kindness and intelligence we encountered in downtown Kamloops last Saturday was overwhelming, and inspiring,” he says. “It’s a day that I don’t think I will ever forget.”
Sargent provides spoken word, a performance artistic poem, while walking through the Saturday farmer’s market and Riverside Park and people stopped on the street added their individual feelings about education and the inability for the B.C. Teacher’s Federation and the provincial government.
This is not the first political video the duo has created. They were awarded with the Audience Favourite at the Kamloops Short Film Festival last month for ‘Calling Stephen Harper,’ a video about the pollution in Canada.
