Even with his busy class schedule, Mark Wright was already working on his own independent movies while a student in our Film program. One of these projects, Soup, became a hit at the Enzian Theater’s annual Brouhaha Film & Video Showcase last year – going on to win a jury prize – and that success led to it being selected for a screening at the Florida Film Festival this weekend.
Soup is a short documentary about the Daily Bread Soup Kitchen in Melbourne, Florida. The project was written and directed by Mark who worked closely with the nonprofit organization to highlight the internal and external pressures they’ve dealt with while trying to help the community.
The film screens as part of the Florida Shorts: The Best of Brouhaha collection, beingheld on Saturday, April 21 at 1:30 p.m. It will be paired alongside the short film Captain Fin, which also features the efforts of Full Sail students and staff.
Mark Wright graduated from Full Sail in 2011, and continues to work on his own films. You can visit his website for more information on Soup, as well as his other projects.
