The 2015 Oxy Student Film Festival went well! We had a great turnout of more than 60 students and faculty. We screened 19 total movie submissions ranging from frictions, to documentaries, to music videos. I want to thank everyone who attended. Special thanks to our student and faculty volunteers who helped organize and run the event. Last but not least, I want to give a big shout-out to our local sponsors, The Capri, and Yogurt Haven for making the prizes possible as well as the MAC program for funding our event.
We are very excited to share the trailer for BRAND: A Second Coming, the feature documentary. Cullen Parr, class of 2014, has been working as the animator and motion graphics artist for the past year. After playing opening night at SXSW and winning awards at Ashland and Sarasota, the film is now slated for theatrical release this fall! Parr did all of the motion graphics for the film as well as two traditionally animated sequences. BRAND will open at the ArcLight Hollywood on September 25th with daily showings through October 1st.
