Students at Georgetown College are no strangers to the world of film. Here students have the opportunity to take classes in Screenwriting, Acting for the Camera and Independent Filmmaking, which is only just the beginning. The theories from those classes are put to the test as students take on large responsibilities for Department-produced shorts and feature length films.
unDeserved, Spring 2011 Film
Our latest feature length film is right on the verge of being finished. With only a few final shots needed it has already been through post-production for a rough cut, and is hoping to be premiered in Spring 2012 if all goes accordingly.
