TU student film makers to share their work April 27

A glimpse of possible future movie talent is on the program as four student film makers at Thomas University debut their work during a screening at 3 p.m. Friday, April 27.

The students created their works while enrolled in the Film 450 class taught by Professor Lee Berger. Each project is about five minutes long. While each student created his or her film, they all worked together as a team on the production of each film.

“We covered both the aesthetic and technical aspects,” Berger said about the class. “I wanted them to acquire knowledge and skills in conceptualizing, scripting, planning, filming and editing a short film.”

The films that will be screened include:

  • “High Hopes” directed by Steven Cady. A young man, Marcus, faces depression and writes a letter before throwing it away as a paper airplane. This will start a chain reaction of people replying with encouragement and getting it back to him.
  • An untitled film directed by Katy Hanscomb. Sophie receives an empty notebook at her door. The only notation the notebook contains is her full name and a supposed date and time of her death later that day. 
  • “The Kidnapping” directed by Laura Alexander. Lucy is practicing soccer with her teammates but is apprehensive about going back to her apartment as there is unfinished business left between her roommates.
  • “Echoes of a Sad Song” directed by Andile Sithole. A young actress takes a role as a girl trapped in an abusive relationship which bares an uncanny resemblance to her real world private life.

“I hope that viewers will see that through these talented students Thomas University has a credible film making program,” Berger said. “I also want the students to experience the fun of exhibiting their work.”

The screening will be held in the Flowers Foods Executive Classroom inside Smith-Bonvillian Hall on TU’s Forbes Campus. The public is welcome to attend the event. There is no admission charge.
