College Film Competition

College Film Competition

I also attended the College Film Competition while I was there, a friend-of-a-friend had entered a movie (that’s right, I know a guy that knows a guy that got a film shown at a festival, damn I’m cool). They were all OK, but only a couple stood out.

One was an interesting movie about 3 minutes long, it was essentially a music video. It was one long shot panning through a model of a small town (think model train town), in the town there are people (blue screened) doing various things. The interesting part is that all the actors are under water, which gave it a very eerie feel. This is what a college film should be, experimental and interesting to watch.

The other that stood out was about 3 guys in their basement playing the board game Risk. Now, this type of movie is not very original, but I give these guys a lot of credit for getting costumes, and making the set interesting. The script was funny, and it was definitely the audience favorite. An great example of how you can make a vary good no/very low budget movie.
