What a wonderful end to the year. I'll keep you posted (no pun intended) on the production and screening of our "final cut" of the film this fall.

Previews and Premieres

This Friday, June 19th, we will be holding our red carpet premiere of School of the Dead. All students who were involved in the creation of the film are invited to attend with their parents. The carpet will be open with sparkling cider and small snacks at 5:15 until 5:45. Our screening of the film will begin at 6 sharp. Please wear formal attire to the event.

Along with the rough cut, we will be screening two short previews. One of the School of the Dead and one of "Addiction", which may or may not be created next year. For those of you who are addicted to preview watching, here is a small taste of what's to come:

The article includes a wonderful write up on the appeal of the film process for 8th graders as well as a lengthy Question and Answer Section with Mr. D., Mr. McLaughlin and myself.
