Film makers may choose from a list of sub-genres to produce. I (Natasha, the program assistant) decided to make a film for the category, "Lonely this Christmas." The project explores the idea of isolation and loneliness via the emphasis on "togetherness" at Christmastime. TCCA's entry, titled "Holiday Cheer: A Sardonic Short Christmas Film", includes candid client footage, self-reflective voice overs, client artwork, and stop-go animation.
This project is one of many to arise from TURN's reception of the City Arts Project Grant, which helps to support our film making ventures as a means of community outreach. We are very grateful to the Salt Lake City Arts Council as they support us in our creative ventures!
The proceeds from this event are going to support the Red Fred Project, which publishes books written by children with terminal illnesses. (For more info, visit redfredproject.com) Come see some great locally made films and support some terrific causes!
