Wide Variety of FDU Student Films to be Shown in Morristown
Madison, NJ (April 27, 2007) –Several short narrative fiction films, all produced by seniors enrolled in Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Gaphics and Visual Arts Program, will be shown in the “2007 Senior Thesis Night Film Festival” at Clearview Headquarters 10 Theatres in Morristown, NJ on Thursday, May 3, 2007 from 5-11 p.m.
The films, which are required for graduation from the program, range from 10-45 minutes. A tremendous variety of films will be screened. The audience will see “Life Wasted” a film about a young man of international descent who must decide whether or not to participate in a terrorist act. Another film focuses on a father who has lost his family because of his life of crime.
World War III is the topic of “Jacksonsville,” which was shot entirely in front of a green screen before its backdrops were added.
One animated film, “Mannyapolis,” was created by a mother-son team, both enrolled in the program. It takes place on an alternate planet populated by mannequins, where one wooden mannequin finds a way to improve his life.
The evening will be segmented into four shows of about one hour and 15 minutes, with a short intermission after each session. Audience members will be readmitted with the ticket stub.
The event is open to the public and admission is three dollars.
