The West Jessamine High School stop motion action film club Moving Pictures entered and won the high school division of the High Bridge Film Festival for their short film Feast Friends.
Feast Friends centers around a man, alone on Thanksgiving, who realizes the true meaning of Thanksgiving. The members of Moving Pictures wrote, shot and edited the whole film by themselves. Sophomore Kaitlyn Kearns did the storyboarding, some members acted in the film and others helped move the props to make the over 2,000 photos appear seamless.
Juniors Nicole Fielder and Jesse Seales founded Moving Pictures last August with art teacher Mr. Stein as faculty adviser. “I wanted to see people’s interest in film develop,” Seales says. “I want to see the club grow [next school year] and for other people to have great ideas and direct their own films.”
Moving Pictures hopes to enter the 2015 High Bridge Film Festival next spring.
