Just a reminder of this Saturday’s Community Film Project’s shirts screening at the DeNaples Center 900 Mulberry St. University of Scranton. Doors open at 7:30 pm and the program begins at 8. Admission is free and open to the general public.
Ranging from comedy to action to suspense, each of the evening’s short films have been produced in Northeast Pennsylvania, entirely utilizing local talent both in front of and behind the camera by CFP member over its seven years of operation. Among the selections to be screened will be entries from the popular “Pumped!” series, including the “Born Pumped,” winner of both the Film of the Year Fans’ Choice and the Film of the year Judges’ Choice awards at last year’s Roslyn Film Festival and the You Tube sensation “Heyna-bonics” (over 305,000 views and climbing).
The evening will also feature the premier of “Transition,” directed by former University of Scranton student Garrett Geary. The film will center on a young man and those close to him contemplate life, death, loss, and what is right in the aftermath of a tragedy.
“It originated as a short script that I had done for a class while attending college,” says Geary. “If one were to read the original script, there was almost no resemblance to the finished short film. Most of the dialogue between the actors was expanded and further improved on set. Due to factors such as weather, crew availability and scheduling, improvisation was used heavily while shooting. I owe everything to the crew and cast for making the project possible.”
