There’s a brand new GradFest on campus.
In addition to the films that Full Sail Film students create, Film Production MFA students are now ready to show off their work as well. The program’s first graduating class premiered their final projects last Thursday in the Dubbing Stage; faculty, students, and their families were treated to the premieres of Taste of Heaven and Sundown.
Taste of Heaven is a coming-of-age story about a father and son who run a business together. It was was written and directed by David Daudin and produced by Alfredo Lara Orbezo Lira.
Sundown shows a day-in-the-life of a released convict trying to do good for himself. It was shot in a pre-apocalyptic setting and was written and directed by Zachary Simon and produced by Damon “D.J.” Rivera.
Over the course of twelve months, students implemented their coursework to create these films. They developed scripts, cast the talent, shot footage, managed a crew, edited everything together, and designed the film’s sound. The Film Production MFA GradFest will now take place monthly, and you’ll be able to check out photos and videos from those projects both here on FullSailBlog.com and over on Art of Full Sail.
