This week I'm showcasing another entry from Campus MovieFest, a drama called "Violet." It was created by Then There Was Lumière Productions at New York University.
Drama is incredibly hard to do as a short film, and believe me, I've seen many a
filmmaker try and fail. It's hard to deal with weighty themes in a short film,
and even hard to deal with certain subjects without dipping into
overwrought melodrama. Because of this, I'm very impressed with
filmmaker Eliza McNitt and her lead actress Amanda Yarosh is excellent
And remember, they only had a WEEK to shoot and edit
this! This was a nominee for Best Picture and deservedly won Best Drama and Best Cinematography at Campus
Movie Fest Hollywood last month.
