Student videos shown at film festival
5 April 2012

BISMARCK (UTN) - Videos produced by three United Tribes students were selected and shown during the inaugural "Dakota Digital Film Festival" in Bismarck.

      The videos are "Student vs. Student" by Monte Grant (Turtle Mountain); "Sunset" by Cody "C. L." American Horse (Standing Rock); and a UTTC Video Arts promo video by Dustin Thompson (Standing Rock).

      The works were screened during the festival's inaugural event Friday, March 30 at the Belle Mehus Auditorium in Bismarck. About 150 students from local colleges and high schools attended the screenings and a series of instructional presentations.

      The festival was coordinated and promoted by Dakota Media Access, the Bismarck "free media" organization that produces community programming distributed through the local cable TV system and online. The goal was to support and encourage the work of emerging and talented local video producers.

      "Student vs. Student" is a comedy short written, directed, acted and produced by Grant and inspired by the "Spy vs Spy" series of MAD Comics.

      "Sunset" is an original music video written, directed, and produced by American Horse with music from his upcoming album.

      The Media Arts promo video by Thompson highlighted online telecasts of sports events and the United Tribes International Powwow.

      The works were produced at United Tribes as part of media arts training in the college's Art/Art Marketing program, instructed by Shawn F. Holz. More information: 701-255-3285 x 1294, sholz@uttc.edu.
