Former image arts student builds a life out of lego

The tiny Lego bricks that coloured most people’s childhoods are designed to make virtually anything. In the case of a former School of Image Arts student, they made his career.                  

Dylan Woodley’s game is stop-motion animation: making seamless movement out of Lego bricks one frame at a time. The 22-year-old has made videos seen by millions of people, including the official Lego remake of Ed Sheeran’s hit song Lego House, as well as his versions of Coldplay’s Viva la Vida and Foster the People’s Houdini.

Ryerson grads’ production company to première show about a crack-smoking mayor

LaRue Entertainment, a production company founded by two Ryerson alumni, will debut their new digital series on YouTube called Filth City on Nov. 5. The date also marks the four-year anniversary of Rob Ford’s admitting to smoking crack.

The show is about a fictional big-city mayor embroiled in a controversy surrounding his own crack video. Creating a comedy loosely based on the late Toronto mayor and the scandal he left behind led his brother Doug Ford to call the show “disgusting.”

MOVIE MONDAYS: The Florida Project

MOVIE MONDAYS: The Florida Project

The Florida Project, written and directed by Sean Baker, is a film that follows the lives of several motel guests throughout one summer in a dirt-poor part of Florida. It is not a film with an overly complex plot and it is not hard to follow at all. And yet, despite how simple the film can seem at times, it is also extremely thought-provoking and emotionally deep. It is, by leaps and bounds, one of the most beautiful and captivating films to come along in 2017.
