Title: John Singer sargent: Outside the Frame
Movie ID: VT6240
Movie Number: 6240
Description: By 1900, John Singer Sargent (1856-1925) was the most admired, the most sought after portraitist in England and America. He exquisitely portrayed in oil and watercolor the spirit of the Gilded Age, and made eternal the elegance of aristocracy, the romance of childhood and the sensuality of Venice. Yet after his death he was quickly dismissed as merely a commercial portrait painter. Now a closer look at his work reveals much more than the faces of the wealthy. Produced and directed by Emmy-winner Jackson Frost, this documentary reexamines Sargent's work, including his landscapes, figure paintings and murals, showing him to be one of the great painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Sargent's unique perspectives capture the essence of his times and the carnage of the First World War that brought the Gilded Age to its bloody end.

LSSU's dedicated three-story fire lab made all the difference to Brian Applegate.

"Our certification training classes offered real situations," Brian says. Students practice victim search techniques while controlling and extinguishing fires. Applegate says his favorite exercise was the live fire flashover simulation. "We saw how fires evolved as they burned," he says. "It’s as close as you can get to the real thing."
