Monday, April 23, 2007 BT Washington students release 10-minute drama, All Things Come To Light, aided by Robinson Film Center

We’ve just posted a Quicktime movie, says Chris Jay, of All Things Come To Light, the film I have been creating with senior Telecommunications Magnet students at Booker T. Washington High School. It’s one of the best student films I have ever worked on, so we’ve posted it on-line. The film took about ten weeks to create, start to finish.

The students are entirely responsible for the screenplay and I’m proud to say that I did not shoot even one frame of the final product – students wrote, shot, and helped edit the film.

Chris Lyon, our newest part-timer at the Robinson Film Center, did lots of editing just because the students were too pressed for time with high-stakes testing this semester to do it all. My guess is that the students worked about 60 hours in all on this.

My goal is to get this outstanding piece of work seen by as many people – especially young people – as humanly possible.

The creation of “All Things Come to Light” was made possible by grants from the Louisiana Division of the Arts and the Charles T. Beaird Foundation.
