Posted March 31, 2011 by butv10 Marketing
Here at butv10, we've been busying ourselves with preparation for the launch of the "Student Shorts" Program. It's an exciting time for the station as we create another platform for Film & TV students to showcase their talents and hard work. It's our belief that this show should, not only exhibit student work, but also create a dialogue between the student body and the channel. After all, the success of this program relies heavily upon student involvement.
With that said, here's a list of the first 13 students and their films featured in the program, complete with a brief description of each:
Connor Reidy, "Brother" - a guy takes pictures to fulfill his dead brother's dreams
Conor Sullivan, "Read My Mind" - a guy time travels to relive good times and fix his relationship
Elliot Jenkins, "The Pawn Shop" - guy runs a hand-cuff scam
Christian Trapp, "Over Easy" - a couple bonds over an egg that doesn't crack
Jesse Schwartz, "The Fortune Cookie" - guy gets a scary fortune cookie
Leslie Jules, "Rushing Reminder" - a girl reflects on her actions after an insignificant fight with her sister turns deadly
Michael Halpern, "Crossing Paths" - a meeting of destiny between a street sweeper and a lawyer
Michelle Simunovic, "Smile" - a man mourns the death of his girlfriend
Ryan Piccirilo, "Chicken Movie" - one man learns that those mysterious clucks are not coming from his breakfast
Steve Jacobs, "Innings in the Airwaves" - a lonely young man brings a baseball game on the radio to life
Scott Krier, "Honor and Fidelity" - a critically wounded WWII hero bestows a medal upon the soldier who tries to rescue him
