La Roche University Hosts Student Film Screening
By Kailyn Lunn, Entertainment Editor
La Roche University film students showcased their talents through concepts ranging from the confession of a murder to budding romance at Laser Storm.
On Friday, January 21, six student films played in CC Square. The following students produced the films shown:
- Carola Corbi-Guiaro
- Daniel Colaianni & Ken Miller
- Zach DeLong
- Matthew Knight & Thomas Krchmar
- Jasey Reiser
- Ryan Slebrich
The films varied in length and style. Murder mystery and horror was the most used genre, except for Corbi-Guiaro and Reiser’s films.
Corbi-Guiaro displayed a short film encouraging the audience not to judge a person without knowing their story, while Reiser’s film was a laser tag romance.
Knight and Krchmar’s comedy-horror included nods to classic slasher films, such as “Friday the 13th,” and a narration technique similar to “The Office.”
The variety of the films proved that students have full artistic freedom; the one common thread was that they were all student-made.
The audience voted for their favorite film. Knight and Krchmar received the Fan Favorite Awarrd and a cash prize for their film, “Slasher Hunter.”
