Student filmmakers from the Yavapai College Film and Media Arts Program are looking for “A Few Good Men” (and women!).

The Yavapai College film program is centered in Clarkdale on the Verde Valley Campus. Students have been taking classes on screenwriting, editing, camera coverage, and sound design. Scripts were written throughout the semester. The competition was fierce on which two would be shot this fall. Both of the chosen films are comedies.

Pennant People,” written and directed by Diana Stoneberg, and “Malcolm in the End,” written and directed by Nicholas (Niko) Contreras. The resulting films will be edited and “in the can” by the end of the semester. The films will then be put on the film festival circuit.

Students will be working on their thesis films throughout the spring semester, which starts in mid-January. These films will be shot across Yavapai County, depending on locations necessitated by the scripts.

Spring semester students will be looking for a broad range of ages and “looks” for their actors. Actors do not need to have experience in film. Interested actors should email FilmSchool@YC.Edu with “ACTOR” in the subject line. Attach a brief bio and one head shot.

Are you “ready for your close-up?”
