"Hey, God;" Louisiana Film Fest winners air on LPB Sunday, Aug 28, 2:30 pm
Former Captain Shreve student Chris Lyon and former Caddo Magnet student Luke Lee were the Grand Prize winners for their modern day adaptation of the Julius Caesar story entitled “Et Tu”. Both were seniors when they produced the film. Caddo Magnet students Danny Lachman, Evan Falbaum and Hunter Carter won the LPB Award for their films “Hey, God”, “Sweat Slayer” and “Daddy”.
“Making the film is only part of the challenge young filmmakers are faced with,” said winning director Chris Lyon. “Often, the real challenge is finding an audience. The Louisiana Film Festival is a great way for young filmmakers to get exposure.”
The Louisiana Film Festival-Student Division, a co-presentation of The Robinson Film Center and Centenary College, will return March 31st-April 1st, 2006. Students and educators interested in submitting original films produced by K-12 students may contact Dr. Michelle Glaros at (318) 869-5264 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Robinson Film Center is a Shreveport-based not-for-profit organization committed to establishing a venue for the best in classic, independent and foreign cinema while serving as a regional resource for filmmakers and educators.
