The Directors Guild of Canada honoured the best in the business at the 13th annual DGC Awards in October. OIART would like to congratulate the team at Tattersall Sound & Picture for receiving a DGC award for Best Sound Editing - Television Series, for Vikings; Trial

OIART graduate Brennan Mercer ('11) (pictured 3rd from the left) is one of the awarded sound editors for the series, along with Claire Dobson, Andrew Jablonski, David McCallum, Steve Medeiros, Dale Sheldrake and Jane Tattersall

Brennan shared some thoughts on the value of his OIART education:

"OIART acclimatized me to the hard work ethic and ambitious schedules that the entertainment industry demands of any new comer. Thanks to the staff, resources and curriculum, I was able to hit the ground running and far surpass any of my expectations in the first 2 years out of school.  If I had went anywhere else for audio education, I'd still be in school right now."
