In a little known tradition (okay, assignment), first-year Broadcast Journalism students write, shoot, and edit a 10-minute short film. With a budget of $0, a camera and a dream, teams compete for the coveted ‘Jello Award’ for best film. The results range from amazing to awkward to absurd. Link magazine is pleased to present this year’s crop. Be sure to tune in everyday for another new feature. Go ahead, vote for your favourite by posting a comment on our Facebook wall.

Before turning to journalism, Simon dabbled in many things.
He earned an honours degree in political science, and still treats elections as if they’re the playoffs.
He nearly started a brewery, and remains a committed beer geek with a well-stocked cellar of vintage brews.
He was a cycling activist, who co-founded East Van Bike Polo and once pedalled from Amsterdam to Istanbul.
He was (okay, still is) a big ol’ nerd who loves pulp film and science fiction.
Now, he writes about these things and others. And he’s committed to bringing you one fine magazine all year long.
