Grauer Film Studies Department Presents Film Night
From Dina Treibel, Film Studies Teacher:
Film Night is an annual screening event that showcases the film projects that Grauer Film Studies students create during the school year. This year's event was held in Meyer Hall on Friday, May 31, and was hosted by the Film Studies Department. Film Night showcased the student filmmakers’ creativity, effort, and application of visual storytelling and movie magic. It was a collaborative effort with the Visual and Performing Arts departments including movie-themed music from musicians and singers from the Music Department led by Isaac Langen; film and theater acting tips from Theatre Arts Director Erin Langen; and screening and audio by Sound and Lighting Director Tom Hopper.
Congratulations to the Film Studies students for being awarded the following honors during the event:
• Best Actor - Jake P. '21
• Best Collaborator - Josie B. '21
• Best Special Effects - Jason W. '21
• Best Editor - Cody D. '20
• Best Cinematographer - William F. '20
• Best Director - William F. '20
At the end of the film screenings, there was a Q&A session where the audience asked the filmmakers about their inspiration and how they created their special effects. Thanks to everyone who came to show their support for our Film Studies students and view their student films on the big screen!
