Motion Picture Arts ready for "Action!"

  • Motion Picture Arts and Theatre students workshop while family members look on during Interlochen's Family Weekend.

October 9, 2015

Here's what has been happening in the MPA division so far this year.

Motion Picture Arts students are working on the finishing touches of their thesis screenplays. We begin productions at the end of October and will continue through March.

We started the season with a video scavenger hunt in which students were asked to capture a series of 16 shots with very specific content and then cut it into short narrative film.

Some current and former MPA students are in the news:

  • Luna Guerra Solano and John Chigas are being honored at this year's All-American High School Film Festival in New York City.
  • Ali Scattergood was hired as an assistant producer with Ken Burns' Florentine Films.
  • Kira Bursky's film Tree Hugger was featured at the Cannes Short Film Pavilion.
