Do you know a Newton student who aspires to act, write, direct or produce videos? During the week of February 15-22, 2015, NewTV will be hosting a short film challenge for Newton students. The program will begin with a kickoff event on February 15 at the NewTV studio where each team will blindly draw the genre of their film. They will also receive a required character, prop and line of dialogue that must be incorporated into their 4-7 minute movie. Throughout the course of the week, the students will work within the given parameters to create the best possible final product. Since they will not know the guidelines until the beginning of the week, all work on the film will be done within the week of the event!
The top three films will be featured during a special screening event at NewTV in the HD screening room and will also be shown during Newton’s Festival of the Arts in May. An additional prize will be awarded to the first place team.
Any aspiring director, actor, writer, or producer who wants a chance to see their story come to life on the big screen should take advantage of this opportunity. Registration is open from January 14-February 14. For more information contact [email protected].
