Victoria International Chalk Festival 2013
On the weekend of September 14 – 15, 2013, Video Links Productions was contracted for the second year by John Vickers, executive director of the Victoria International Chalk Festival, to film the work of the various professional chalk artists and the on-lookers on Government Street and at Spirit Square, as well as the amateur artists (including the enthusiastic children) and the various First Nations entertainers, also at the Square. The theme of First Nations was the subject of much of the art created, including that of Leon Keer from the Netherlands, who painted his 20′ x 20′ canvas in the display space on the lowest level of the Bay Centre. It has a 3D effect when viewed from the correct angle, particularly at floor level.
The video taped by VLP will be used for promotional projects in the coming year to create interest in next year’s Chalk Festival.
