Gift From Above

James Newhook is a filmmaker currently attending the Digital Filmmaking program at CNA. He has a love for the history of the island of Newfoundland and can’t wait to show what it has to offer! 

Marion Counsel grew up on Red Island Placentia Bay, and has written many recitations and songs about that experience, mainly as a keepsake for her son Michael.

James Newhook's film A Gift from Above is based on one of her true stories
