Our 10 live-action film/video seniors at Rhode Island School of Design are busy shooting their projects locally and in New York, China, Poland, and the Philippines. Pictured here are some of the cast and crew from Alexandra Pizzuti’s The Coop – a hilarious fantasy about a gay conversion camp where the teen campers get converted into chickens instead of straight people.
Other films include a moving story of two teen brothers trying to find their way alone after their mother dies; a supervillain movie pitting different forms of evil against one another; a semi-autobiographical narrative about a young Korean man trying to convince his Polish girlfriend’s Catholic parents to let her marry him; and a dream-like reverie about live streaming's impact on relationships.
It’s been a lot of fun co-teaching the Degree Projects workshop with veteran filmmaker Peter O’Neill. Can’t wait for our show May 10-13!
