There is no agony like bearing an untold story
inside of you. - Maya Angelou
This is why I suppose I started making movies.
Ever since I was little I wanted to let people know a story. My story. Her
story. Any story. Something that would captivate people and make them say, this
is my story too.
I've had the opportunity to live out this dream
with my friends since we've won the Rutgers Movie Fest prize for Best Picture.
We are able to attend a screening of our movie in LA this June. They'll screen
our film at Universal Studios, then at the Cannes International Film Festival
My friends and I all went to the same high
school but different colleges. We all have different dreams, motivations and
ambitions, but our films are what glue us together. We can only hope to inspire
other students from our hometown to see that there is nothing like passion,
good friends and the agony of an untold story to realize your dream.
We're college students so we'll need your help
in getting to start our dream on level we haven't fully grasped yet.
What is the meaning of life? The great
revelation never does come. Instead there are daily miracles, illuminations,
matches that strike unexpectedly in the dark. - Virginia Woolf
We believe our films can be that illumination,
striking unexpectedly, and resulting in something profound. The trip to LA will involve educational workshops, lectures with industry leaders, opportunities to network and of course our film will compete against other great student films across the country. We just need a little help to get there and be a part of it all!
