May 5, 2014 - Bradford Bourque and Scott Istvandi, two grade 11 students in teacher Steve Facchini's Specialist High Skills Major ICT program at Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic Secondary School, were announced the winners of the "Belanger Ford's Filming for Funds!" contest at the Belanger Lincoln Ford Centre LTD Grand Opening on Friday, May 2nd, 2014 in Chelmsford. As entries for the contest, schools from around Greater Sudbury submitted 30-second videos intended to promote Belanger Ford in a unique an creative way. Bradford and Scott's winning video featured a Ford truck that could bark, growl, and wag its antenna. As the prize, Bishop Carter received a cheque for $3000 towards promoting and improving creativity within the school, as well as a $500 celebratory lunch party. Much of the winnings will go towards enhancing the new 3D Game Development section of the SHSM program.

"Creativity does not have limits in my class." says Facchini. "I teach my students everything: video, sound, special effects, 2D graphics, photography, 3D graphics and animation, web development, 3D game programming. If my students want to make a truck behave like a dog, then there would be nothing stopping them. Brad and Scott's video is definitely proof of that. I'm extremely proud of their awesome work. And I definitely thank Belanger Ford for providing us with this amazing opportunity."
