RHYTHM & WORDS
Accompanied by Gabrielle Godon and Emma Berger-Kovacs, singer-songwriters of the duo Heartstreets, a group of students from Lindsay Place High School wrote a bilingual song as part of their French course (teacher: Pascal Leblanc) and their music course (teacher: Susan Strunc). Then, under the guidance of videographer Camille Trudeau-Rivest, they produced a video-clip based on their lyrics.
The video-clips will be posted online from May 17 to June 17, 2018. The student videographers whose clip gets the most views will receive a $1,000 prize. All participants are encouraged to promote their video-clip among family and friends.
The project, which got underway in January, will end in June. The most popular video-clip will be unveiled during a party to be held at the school and that will bring together students, parents, teachers and project facilitators.
CONTEST – MAY 17 TO JUNE 17
Heartstreets (HS), which is composed of Gab Godon and Emma Beko, started as a childhood friendship that organically blossomed through their love of dance and 90s hiphop. Born in Budapest being half Peruvian, Emma Beko grew up in Montreal and got most of her rap influence from living in New York. Gab Godon was born and raised in Montreal and listened to a lot of 90s R&B.
Based in Montreal, the girls have spent the past few years working on their craft and performing throughout the city. After releasing a string of critically acclaimed singles, they released their first EP titled You and I, in May 2016. An ode to love and all the emotions and adventures you can go through when you are close to someone.
Following the success of the EP they were invited to share the stage with the likes of Gallant, The Internet, Daniel Caesar, Charlotte Cardin, Busty and the Bass and Dead Obies just to name a few. Named by NYLON Magazine one of 5 Canadian acts that you should listen to right now, HS have gained fans every time they step foot on a stage.
Graduated from a bachelor in Film Production at Concordia University in Montreal, Camille travelled and filmed in Argentina, Bolivia and Mexico for over two year. The creation and distribution of film and digital art are not only a goal and a dream, but a passion.
Her master’s degree in Communications and Technologies enrich her projects and inspire her vision of cinema and the arts. Working with children has always been part of her life too; she works in various schools helping kids developing their creative side.
