“ A Film On Hate” by Reed C. Carson from Fayetteville High School
It’s no wonder why Carson won a THEA scholarship for directing with this piece. “A Film On Hate” is wonderfully put together with an entertaining story line and ironic twist at the end. The good acting and character development throughout the piece especially impressed me. With a good plot line and overall comedic feel, “A Film On Hate” will be sure to put a smile on your face.
“Call Me Crazy” by Amanda Hamilton and Michael Merida from Lakeside High School (Hot Springs)
I loved this song and video together. With the different transitions and scenes working in concert, it gave the piece a dramatic feel. Hamilton and Merida did a good job describing throughout the music video what might be going on with the girl and guy emotionally in the song.
“Pyro” by Cole Borgstadt from Fayetteville High School
Pyro is a intense piece that will catch the viewer’s attention immediately. I loved how the producer was able to act out the entire story in just ten minutes while still providing enough background information to know what is going on. Shedding light on the negatives and positives, this short story displays how the characters each deal with internal struggles differently.
