In early August I joined a crew of 10 GFU film alumni and current students to conquer a unique challenge: write, shoot and edit a short film in under 48 hours.

Remember Steve Taylor? (Revolutionary Christian rock musician, record producer for The Newsboys, director of the upcoming Blue Like Jazz film.) Well on August 1st GFU professor Sarah Gibson along with four students launched their interactive documentary Steve Taylor’s Digital Clone.

Each year George Fox hosts a film festival featuring the best productions from students over the course of the past two semesters. The festival committee puts on a great event at Bauman Auditorium where students dress up, walk the red carpet, and get awards for their amazing work. Each year that I have attended the films have gotten better and better. This year was no exception. Writer/Director Natalie Daly came away from the night with several awards for her short film “Through the Mailbox”. She says, “My cast and crew were great and committed to the project. We had a few 16-hour shooting days, but everyone had a great attitude about it. The editor and I pulled a few all-nighters to get the project ready for the festival.“ The film was one of three made as part of the Advanced Production Workshop course under the Cinema and Media Communication major at George Fox .
The cast and crew of “Through the Mailbox” receive their award for Best Picture.
