FrightLite to be Screened at Student Filmmakers Association

May 06, 2014

FrightLite, an animated short film created by Arts and Technology animation students and faculty, has been selected for screening at the SMU Student Filmmakers Association Spring Film Festival. The film depicts a boy who grapples to overcome his fear of monsters.

(L-R) Arts and Technology masters students Vincent Lo with fall 2013 graduates Sarah Wright, Greg Slagel, Ashley Hackett and Chelsea Suarez at the USA Film Festival. The students participated in a two-semester course to create the animated film.

The event will take place at the Mockingbird Station Angelika Film Center on Tuesday, May 6 from 7-9 pm. A question-and-answer session will follow the films.

Earlier in the year, the film pre-screened at the Self Medicated Film Festival (RxSM) in Austin, TX. RxSM, which takes place each year alongside South by Southwest, features boundary-expanding storytelling that falls outside of the mainstream. 

FrightLite also screened in April at the USA Film Festival, where it was a finalist in the National Short Film and Video Competition. The USA Film Festival festival, now in its 36th year, encourages excellence in the film and video arts.
