Concordia launches courses on Dave Chappelle, drone videography


A pair of new courses at Concordia University have drawn the attention of the local press. Concordia Professor Yassin “Narcy” Alsalman has announced that he will be teaching a course on controversial comedian Dave Chappelle this Fall. The Daily Hive and Yahoo!News report that Alsalman has previously taught classes covering hip hop figures and rappers such as Kanye West, Kendrick Lamarm and Chance the Rapper. MTL Blog reports that Concordia will also be offering a new four-week course on drone videography this month. “It’s a new tool that allows for new perspectives. These shots and images used to be super expensive to get,” said indie filmmaker Diego Rivera-Kohn, who will teach the class.
