New Short Film Club to bring student filmmakers together


On Sept. 18, the newly created Short Film Club held its first ever meeting. Its creator, Kyle Hand ’20, has the goal of making the club “the ultimate collaboration of creators on campus,” as he is motivated to bring people interested in acting, directing, costume design, and many more. Hand has experience with the Nevergreens and Improv Club on campus, and has always had an interest in writing and the beauty of filmmaking.

“The club has something for everybody,” he said.

The club hopes to be juggling multiple projects at once in order to keep every section busy throughout the semester. For each film project taken on by the club, Hand hopes to split the duties into pre-production, production, and post-production crews, which will effectively give members a chance to expand their creative horizons.

Hand hopes everyone involved with the club understands the purpose of the group is to “learn and grow together as a community. To succeed in this business, we have to help each other out.”

Another exciting aspect of the club is Hand’s vision of having an Oscar-like screening at the end of the semester. By renting out a space to display the films produced over the course of the semester, dressing up in formal attire and inviting all who were involved and their friends, the event could be a mini-gala on the Evergreen campus.

“It’s new, it’s experimental, and it’s going to be a great time,” Hand said.

Even though the first introductory meeting has passed, the Short Film Club is always looking for people interested in any aspect of the filmmaking process, and by contacting Kyle Hand at [email protected], the opportunities are endless!
