New Pop-up Shop: Veritus Pictures Inc.
We’re excited to announce a new pop-up shop is opening at 1801 Danforth this Saturday, Dec. 21! If you’re still searching for that perfect gift for the amateur photographer or filmmaker on your list, Veritus Pictures is opening just in the nick of time.
Workshops offered by Veritus Pictures Inc. cover camera, editing and audio and are open for beginners, intermediate and advanced participants. Empowerment is proprietor James Buffin’s approach, leaving people with practical information that lasts longer than your camera.
Buffin is a filmmaker with 25 years experience, working on movies, tv shows, commercials, music videos and documentaries shooting across North America, South America, Asia and the South Pacific. Having taught for many years with organizations like Planet In Focus, LIFT Toronto and Workman Arts, he is now bringing video workshops to the East End. He brings a passion and joy to sharing how to get amazing results using small, affordable tools.
The space is also an active studio, both in and outside of regular hours. The public is welcome to come in and observe.
Public hours are Tuesday-Saturday 1:00-5:30pm, plus workshop hours posted here:
Buffin’s photography from around the planet fills the space.
