Youth film fest rolling out the red carpet

Explore North Shore Youth Film Festival hits the red carpet Feb. 15.



The red carpet is ready to roll out and 30 students are holding their breath as they go head-to-head at the Explore North Shore Youth Film Festival.

With four categories — Grades 4 to 7, 8 to 10, 11 to 12 and a French Canadian showcase, 19 films are on the judges’ list.

Director Bruce Mohun, producer Sheona MacDonald, president of Looking Glass Productions Ltd. Dan Moscrip, creative director for The Eyes Television Production Ltd. Stan Feingold, North Shore Studio president Peter Leitch and Capilano University Film Centre director Bill Thumm will be judging the competition.

Two-time Olympian freestyle mogul skier John Smart will be speaking at the free event, which takes place on Monday, Feb. 15, at the West Vancouver Community Centre at 6:30 p.m.

Here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come:

The Proud, the Jealous, and the Lonely

The cast —

The Proud – Jee Woo Choi

The Jealous – Zac Hansen

The Lonely – Mr. Mackenzie

Young Lonely – Duncan Stratton

Nima – Nima Nicknam

Our film for the 2010 film festival is about three characters, The Proud, the Jealous and the Lonely. The Proud is a character that is trying to show everyone what he is capable of. The Jealous is a character that is Jealous of the Proud and wants to do better than him. The Lonely is a man who used to be a star runner but can no longer run. The plot is mainly about The Jealous, who spends too much time skateboarding and is shocked to fail a test while the Proud did very well on the test. He’s later walking down a hall and sees a track and field poster and decides to join only to see The Proud joining too. The Jealous cannot run for long periods of time so, The Lonely helps The Jealous to run longer distances so he can win the race against The Proud. This gives The Jealous the satisfaction he needs.

It was really a fun project to make this movie. It was a very fun experience that we would easily do again. We also have to thank Jee Woo who spent so much time and effort on this and it wouldn’t have been possible to make it without him.
