Film Crew Wins Awards

Columbia State Community College’s Film Crew Technology students swept the award ceremony with three awards for their submission in the Nashville 48-hour Film Project, competing against teams from all over the mid-state, the college’s team took “Best Silent Film” and “Best Cinematography Overall,”” and in their division, the team was awarded “Best Film.”

The Nashville 48-Hour Film Project gives teams 48 consecutive hours to write, script, cast, shoot and edit a movie. The teams are given random elements which must be incorporated into the finished video.

Columbia State’s team competed in the “Silent Movie” category and had to incorporate a character named Fritz or Frieda Sinclair, a gym teacher, a blender and the line, “We need to get going.”

“I think one of our best advantages was that our program carefully trains students to work as a team in a professional environment,” said Read Ridley, Director of the Film Crew program.
