BStudent film featured at film festival
A film created by a UW-River Falls Communications Studies and Theatre Arts Department special topics class was selected as an official selection in the Milwaukee Spotlight Student Film Festival and took first place under the narrative filmmaking genre.
The course taught by Evan Johnson, required two groups to each make an original 10-minute film for a final project. Both films were a success and one, “Pushed Over,” was entered in the Milwaukee Spotlight Student Film Festival.
The student film crew included: Brad Brookins, a senior majoring in English from St. Paul; Chris Kibellus, a sophomore from Exeland; former UW-RF student Ryan Brennan; former UW-RF student Cody Dinsen who composed the score; Melissa Murphy, a senior majoring in English from Stillwater, Minn.; Holly Conwell, a junior from St. Michael, Minn.; Nathan Piotrowski, a sophomore majoring in English from Stevens Point; and Beth Van Kampen, a junior majoring in psychology from St. Paul.
