Set sail onto the screen and into a post-apocalyptic world where romance blooms, and death awaits, as Peninsula College film students present “The One Minute Film Festival,” March 19 at 8:00 pm.
The Festival will feature a collection of films that explore drama, comedy and everything in between. With so many different storylines, there is something to grab everyone’s attention. The event is free and open to the general public.
“Some people might find it impossible to capture an entire world and a story to tell in just one minute, but these students chose to challenge that way of thinking and not only tackle the obstacle, but do so with flying colors and unimaginable creativity,” said Dr. Lara Starcevich who teaches the course.
The project is a collaboration between the DRMA 101 and FILM 120 classes at Peninsula College. Students were responsible for everything from writing their original scripts to casting and directing their own films. Actors, writers, and directors include: Ash Boss, Yu Chigira, Anthony Cortani, Christian Eastman, Sydney Frymyer, Cassius Jennings, Mariah Lachester, Madeline Montana, Kevin Slow, Kong Tong, Connor West, and Dr. Lara Starcevich.
Featured films include:
