So this just in from Mom,
My baby sister Heather and her friends just placed first in a 48-hour film contest, and are entering their project into the nationals. Their film also also placed first in the acting and directing categories.
Their task: Given a genre, one prop, one quote, and one name, the crew had 48 hours to write, shoot, and edit a film. Specifically:
Genre – Film de Femme
Character – Alex Gomm – County Employee
Prop – Spoon
Line of Dialogue – “Keep that thing away from me.”
These kids were up for two days straight. They came up with this.
I found it an entertaining Generation-Y twist on Pearl Jam’s nineties classic, Jeremy.
Heather does an exceptional job playing Terra (cool name!), the hottie in the white car. I’m probably just biased, but, hey, what proud big brother isn’t?
Nice job, kids!
