Producing time

Our View

Last year was the first ever Tiger Film Festival. Over a dozen films were displayed to an excited audience. The setup was complete with dazzling emcees, sparkling decorations, sleek awards and a successful balloon drop.

This year, the second Tiger Film Festival will be held April 15. Films must be submitted by March 25 to a panel of judges who will select the best ones for display at the event. So, directors, actors, aspiring cameramen and women, there are just four short months until deadline. There are scripts to be written and auditions to be held.

Films must be a minimum of 30 seconds in length to a maximum of 15 minutes. They will be judged on the delivery of the message, use of technology, creativity and approach in delivering the message and overall impression.

Last year’s submissions ranged from a documentary on training a beloved dog to perform tricks, to a foreign film produced by a German class, to creative music videos.

Even if you aren’t interested in submitting a video, the Film Festival Committee would love to have you help plan the event. You can contact Anna Love, Maya Amjadi or social studies teacher Chad Van Cleve to find out about meeting times. Whether you are interested in helping behind the scenes or participating by appearing on screen, your involvement will be appreciated in the spring when audience members will be in for quite the thrill.

The Tiger Film Festival is a really neat experience because it is something everyone can participate in, despite their different talents. In movie making and producing, there is something for everyone. Last year, many students were featured and many even highlighted their hard work or unbelievable commitment. It is a night where people are brought together through laughs and tears. Make sure to mark the date and get started on putting a film together with friends.
