2 – 5 students will be selected as producers, 2 students will be selected as directors and four scripts will be named as “top scripts” (only two will be produced). Directors and producers will select two of the scripts to be produced for the film festival; all four scripts will be announced and awarded at the Open Frame Film Festival event in the spring. Casting will take place later in the semester, but actors are encouraged to turn in headshots and resumes as soon as possible.
Winning directors and producers will have access to the best cameras available in Media Services, will have access to editing on FINAL CUT PRO, and will have other filmmaking equipment available to them. Winning producers and directors will also be mentored by faculty members in the Communication Arts Department and by Media Services.
Materials for directors, writers and producers will be due October 22, 2007 at noon. Winners will be announced on October 29 at 5 p.m. on the Open Frame Blog.
More information about the application process can be found on the Open Frame Blog. Please turn in all materials to Kerrie Fisher, administrative assistant in the Communication Arts Office.
