The Monster Inside
While in the midst of brainstorming ideas for their upcoming short film, the proposition of a “60 Second Short Film Contest” was brought up. As the idea sprouted, members of the LBCC Film Club resonated with the idea and began to work excitedly on their new project.
Open to film creators of the public, the contest was especially intriguing to the club as the grand winner would get to walk away with $10,000 worth of prizes. The prompt alone was enough to get the team excited about their project, which was to create a film to showcase their ability to work together, being that this was their first film of the season.
The prompt: Four in the morning, and there is a knock at the door…
It was up to the crew to determine what exactly was on the other side of the door. Student director Kaitlynn Hughes said, “We figured, it being our first project, it was a small scale project we could work on so that we could all get familiar with each other and give everyone (including myself) some insight on how films are made.” She further explained that members had the original idea of creating a comedy, but decided instead to create a monster out of the main character.
While there were a number of challenges that arose as production of the film took place, that did not stop the LBCC Film Club from creating a thrilling film that takes its viewers into a story behind closed doors!
Have you ever thought about how to start a career in film? Now that you have been given an adequate teaser, students should come by Red Cedar Hall 213 on Wednesdays.
