  MOVIE POSTERHAVE A LITTLE FAITH, 12min, USA, Comedy
Directed by Ashton Avila

A rebellious teenager is determined to get kicked out of her new Christian High School and teach the new boy she meets there what it really means to “have a little Faith”.

Director’s Statement:

“Have A Little Faith”, while set in Bible School, to me, it is not about religion or Christianity. It’s about a high school girl who has entered an oppressive environment with a past of hurt and anger. Driven by that pain and frustration, she sets out to destroy everything in her path until she meets a boy, who through his friendship, can show her the power of love and acceptance.

AUDIENCE FEEDBACK VIDEO:

  MOVIE POSTERHEAD SPACE, 5min, Drama/Thriller
Directed by Emma Huibregtse

A single mother concerned with her son’s inability to cope, sees the tables turn when faced with danger.

Director’s Statement: After numerous scripts of mine were returned by USC faculty members claiming the concepts were “too big” for the scope of our class projects – we had only $1,500 and 5 weeks to make a film from casting to final sound mix! – I knew I had to keep my story simple. In a last minute panic the night before our scripts were due I came up with the concept for Head Space, resorting to the affordable unique location of under the kitchen table as my primary setting.

With my strong interest in cinematography I was inspired by the unique shot compositions and angles offered by a child’s limited perspective in an unusual space. I have no idea how this story came out of me, but I’m glad it did. As my first major production it was an honor to collaborate with our dedicated cast and crew. As a trumpet player music has always played a vital role in my films and the opportunity to work with composer Steve Gaboury to develop the score was incredible. Recording with our live jazz band brought our visuals to an entirely new level. It was a pleasure to work along side such creative professionals. We hope you enjoy the film!

AUDIENCE FEEDBACK VIDEO:

  MOVIE POSTERWHEN STRANGERS TOUCH YOUR HAIR, 7min., Drama
Directed by Anisha Adusumilli & Samantha Neyland

She fits everywhere but nowhere at the same time.

Introduction

When Strangers Touch Your Hair is a fresh new perspective on interracial dating. Based on true events, this film tells the story of SAM, a 21-year-old who, with a Caucasian mother and African-American father, is the product of an interracial relationship. With a little bit of romance and a whole lot of reality, this is a glimpse at dating when you’re biracial.

Synopsis

Sam and Daniel are a young new couple still getting to know each other. Sam is mixed: black and white and Daniel is white. The two are so wrapped up in each other that neither of them gives any thought to why it might not work. However, once Sam’s friends point out the obvious racial difference between her and her new

guy, it’s all she can think about. Feeling torn and confused Sam ultimately tells Daniel her concern. While his initial reaction is very reassuring, Sam soon learns that one conversation will not solve her problem.

Filmmaker Statement

This film is based very closely on real life experiences. When I grew up the black kids always told me I was white and the white kids always told me I was black. As a kid this was very unsettling. I always felt like I had to pick a side and I hated it because to me that meant picking a parent to love more. Making this film was my way of talking about the insecurities that I’ve always lived with but only recently chose to acknowledge. To me, being biracial comes with its own struggle that is almost never talked about. I made this film because for once I want to talk about it. I think we’ve made a tremendous amount of progress as a society but the fight for equality and acceptance is far from over.
