Cam Roulette and Geomorphic: North Carolina to screen at the Light Factory Filmmakers’ Showcase

Thurs. May 31 and Friday, June 1 / 7:00 PM
WHERE The Light Factory / 345 N. College Street, Charlotte NC 28202
ADMISSION $5 TLF members / $7 non-members
The Light Factory Filmmakers’ Showcase highlights the art of short films, created by emerging, established, and student filmmakers. We screen all manner of films from all around the world, while maintaining a special emphasis on regional filmmakers.

Two UNCG films will screen at the Light Factory Filmmakers’ Showcase 2012.

Cam Roulette (Dir. Dr. Michael Frierson)- A screen space built from symmetrical rotating shapes.

Geomorphic: North Carolina (Dir. Mariah Dunn) is a mediation on the diverse landscape of North Carolina. Objects, such as leaves or seashells, found in each location were collected and inserted into the camera. The result captured on the 35mm film is both a macro and micro image that defines the space. The rough stop motion emulates a sense of exploration through the land beginning in the mountains and traveling east to the coast.

MFA Practicum Film Fest Review

The MFA Practicum Film Fest was a huge success!

The night started with an acoustic set by Brock Butler of Perpetual Groove (a band featured in one of the short documentaries). There was a great turn out to see the films and the night ended with a set by Mamadou’s Fantastic Band (also featured in one of the short documentaries).

The MFA class of 2013 would like to thank all who attended!
