NORFOLK, NE — Digital Cinema students at Northeast took to the big screen as their capstone film projects were debuted to the public.
“It’s going to be interesting,” Instructor Timothy Miller says, “The big screen is a whole different animal.”
Seven students individually created three short films and four documentaries. On Saturday at the Norfolk 7 they were debuted.
“So the ideas that have been living in their heads are going to be out there for everybody to see.”
The semester-long Capstone class required the students do everything a professional video or movie project would need to be entered into a film festival, or presented to the public, according to one of their instructors, Timothy Miller.
“They have to shot it, script it, edit it, write it…it’s a very collaborative effort on all the students working together.”
Daniel Embeier’s short film, Craig Did It, was inspired by murder-mysteries shown episodes like Sabrina the Teenage Witch, The Twilight Zone and Frasier.
News Channel Nebraska’s own Tiffany Jacobson even had her documentary debuted.
“My teachers gave me the idea to do it on News Channel Nebraska. I was like ‘That is actually a really good idea.'”
Miller says that some of the students in the past have even had the opportunity to have their films showcased at film festivals.
