Jordan entered the short film category. He made a futuristic commercial with an akward, used car salesman feel to it. He titled it, "Garr Bith's Used Lightsabers". He won" First Place" in the Comedy division!
The second film festival they entered was The Utah Digital Arts Media Festival. They entered their same videos in all three festivals. This one Tyler received "Best of Show" for his 3D Animation. He won a year subscription for "After Affects", something he has always wanted. Although he won't be able to use it for the full year because he will be leaving on a mission this year. But he was still very excited. And Jordan was too. He can use it when Tyler is gone.
Jordan won "First Place" for his video, and recieved a Cromecast. I'm not exactly sure what it is, but it hooks to the back of the TV and then you can watch "You Tube" or other stuff from your phone and project it onto the TV.
The last film festival they entered this school year was The Nebo Film Festival. It was the smallest of the three and just consisted of the five high school's in our District. They had a lot of fun at this one because they knew the kids because a lot of them attend classes at the ALC. It was pretty much the end of the school year party. The ALC teachers made it really fun for the kids. The rented the Spanish Fork Movie Theater and rolled out the red carpet for them. They wanted to rent a limo and asked for $10 donations from the kids, but I guess they didn't get enough. They had all of us stand outside the theater and loaded the kids/directors into the ALC mini vans at the back of the theater. Then Mr. Arnold drove them around to the front of the building where all us "fans" and paparazzi were and let them get out and make their entrance on the red carpet leading into the theater, while we all cheered and took pictures. It was a lot of fun! Tyler won "2nd Place" for his animation here, and "1st Place" for a short movie he and his classmate, Albert made called "Hippie Fries". Albert was the Director, Tyler was the Cinematographer, and Jordan had a small cameo in it.
Jordan won "1st Place" for his short film again and also won the award for "The Best up and Coming Film Maker".
They really have enjoyed their time together at the ALC and were sad to see it come to an end. They said they are going to continue and go up to the ALC this summer.
This is Tyler and Jordan's film submissions. They are on "You Tube"
