New filmmaking awards for students and faculty in CAT program
by Herschel Zahnd

On July 25-27, students and faculty of the CAT Program came together to participate in the 2015 Forty-Eight Hour Film Project.

  Current and former CAT students Kelli Coleman, Jason Hoefflin, Jerry Lester, and Michael Phelps led by CAT filmmaking instructor, Herschel Zahnd, captured two coveted filmmaking awards during the event.

  Their film, “The Path to Rage”, was named to the “Best of the 48 Hour Film Project” screening at Village 8 Theaters taking home awards for Best Special Effects and Best Choreography.

  The team was led and directed by Zahnd with Kelli Coleman acting and serving as team Writer, Michael Phelps worked as an actor and also worked as the team Gaffer.

  Jerry Lester worked as the production sound mixer, and CATP Alumnus, Jason Hoefflin, was the Director of Photography.

  Here's how the 48 Hour Film Project works: Teams each draw a different film genre out of a hat. Then they are all given the same: prop, character, and line of dialogue (which must be spoken or written out exactly).  

  The teams then have 48hrs to write, shoot, and edit a 4-7min film. The films are then screened and judged at a film festival at Village 8 Cinema.

The team will be reuniting in the month of October for the special 48hr Horror Film Project, which is certain to be a "Bloody" good time.
