UCA Student Filmmaking
UCA student films are playing in festivals across the country, from Florida to California. Recent UCA graduate John Hockaday won the Best Director Made in Arkansas Award at the 2014 Little Rock Film Festival for his film Stuck.
UCA Feature Film Project
UCA is one of the only film programs in the country that regularly produces a feature film that allows student filmmakers hands on experience crewing at every level of the project. UCA’s second feature film project, Sympathy Pains was written and directed by UCA faculty member Joe Dull, while faculty member Mike Gunter served as Director of Photography. The film premiered on the UCA campus on September 23rd and is just beginning its run on the festival circuit.
UCA 3D Stereo Filmmaking
The film program at UCA is a leader in educating students in cutting edge technology. It’s one of only a handful of schools in the country to have taught a stereo (3D) filmmaking course. Three UCA professors, Bruce Hutchinson, Scott Meador, and Chris Churchill collaborated with a student crew to make the first 3D narrative film shot in Arkansas. It has played at a wide range of film festivals including London Sci-Fi, was the opening night film at the Miami International Science Fiction Festival, and garnered an Honorable Mention at the Boston Science Fiction Festival.
The 3D trailer can be viewed wearing traditional blue/green 3D glasses. If you don’t have any 3D glasses, the 2D trailer can be found below.
