"An opportunity like this never would have come available to me if I had not taken the program in the Sault College/LSSU International Division," Hornblower said. "My employer was very impressed with the fact that I not only had a degree in computer networking, but the hands-on knowledge, as well. This is the main reason that I was hired."

Title: Giotto: His Life and Art
Movie ID: VT6269
Movie Number: 6269
Description: A documentary on the life and entire artistic production of Giotto (1267-1337), considered the greatest of all the Italian Gothic painters. The innovations and originality that Giotto brought to the art world have influenced all artists since. His life and art are presented here ...from Assisi to Rome, Rimini to Padova and, of course, in his own Florence. Giotto was considered "the principal painter of our time" by both Petrarch and Dante, major Italian Renaissance poets. He was an apprentice to the painter Cimabue and learned the art of fresco from him. Fresco is the art of painting with a water-based paint on moist lime plaster. Giotto brought a naturalism to his work which differed from the formality of the past. He was especially known for his lifelike figures, bright colors and intense, blue backgrounds.
