Set of Six / Visual Narrative Short Films

glassware.jpg

This spring, UMD Acting for the Camera students and Visual Narratives filmmakers collaborated to create short video projects, each integrating a glass from this set. Scenerios were brainstormed, locations scouted, characters invented, scripts developed. Six teams went into production, shooting 6 different scripts, each featuring at least 2 actors in speaking roles. Each story varied in choice of setting, character conflicts, mood and genre. Each filmmaker edited a unique cut of their project. Music students created original compositions used in sound tracks for many of these shorts. Duluth locations included the Glensheen Mansion, the Duluth Depot, and the Tweed Museum of Art.
