Over the summer, several students had an opportunity to work in an intense 4-day film workshop. In just four days students wrote a screenplay, casted actors, scouted locations, brought in multiple costume changes, shot, acted, and worked their butts off to put together a short film.
As with all things media-creative, time was our enemy.
Let me tell you. The script was fantastic. Far and away the best thing I have read from a group of students. The effort that went into character design, and plot, and setting. It was great. And from what they have shot so far, it aims to be an well made emotional ride. Below, is the first trailer, and sneak peek of the their final short film.
With the school year starting soon, and many students finding less and less time to work on projects outside of everyday schoolwork, jobs, sports teams, clubs, and free time it gets harder and harder to find the time to make things work out. I know that, and understand exactly where they are. Regardless if this ever gets finished, I am very proud of all their work. Maybe this trailer will inspire you to at the very least, keep this wonderful story that you created together, in the back of your mind.
