“Every year we find pearls, says Pier Colbert, referring to the students at the production design school he co-founded and directs. A non-profit organization, Productions Jeun'Est trains young people between 18 to 35 years old in the three main disciplines of sound, lighting and rigging. By the end of the 10-month program, students become professionals and leaders in Montréal theatres, event companies, festivals and  Cirque du Soleil.

PJE’s mission is to teach its students a two-fold art of living: “a valuable profession and the ability to contribute to their communities as creative and responsible citizens,” says Pier. PJE recruits come from difficult backgrounds; they are often high school dropouts, or people who have not found their voice and happiness in the job market.

“Production design is manual, physical, fun, it is not routine-based, you travel,” says Pier, who co-founded PJE in 1996. “Production design is just as challenging as any profession. There is a lot you have to know. If I send 20 technicians to the Palais des Congrès, they have to be competent.”

How does the team of PJE instructors keep a strong connection with students who don’t have a great track record in a classroom setting? “You have to be patient, and tolerant about repeating and reminding — and passionate,” adds Pier. The program includes a history of production design techniques, and for this part of the course Pier reveals his personal inspirations. He shows videos of Pink Floyd concerts to students, dissecting their technical dimensions.

Go for a show at Montreal’s art film and independent cinemas

Located in the borough of Mercier-Hochelaga-Maisonneuve, this local cinema is actually a small room housed in a former school. Open since 2014, it shows current and independent films. Warm and friendly, the room has about 40 seats. Each week, a filmmaker comes to present their work and speak with the audience.
