NCSU doesn’t advertise this much but the Student Short Film Showcase, an event at which students showed their short films, short animations, and short videos, was an entertaining evening of creativity and exploration, of both art and communication.
There was a small crowd there – mostly students. The auditorium at Hunt Library is huge and so even with more than 50 people, there was still plenty of seating. The technical difficulty, where sound was lost temporarily, was overcome and the students did a great job of answering questions about their work. While I’m partial to animation (and enjoyed The Heist, Cotton Unity, and Shelter) I also enjoyed the live action film, with pieces with such names as Level 3 East, The Game of Fate, and Prism.
