Wednesday, March 20th, conversation filled the College Hall, room 100 auditorium.  People were talking about the creativity and teamwork that took place during the recently wrapped Oregon Road Film Series (ORFS) Film Challenge. Filmmaking teams dove into a non-stop, whirlwind adventure from March 15 through March 17, 2024, racing against time to craft short films on specific themes.

“I think everyone was able to bring their creative ideas to their respective films and they all came together well,” reflected Cheesy Productions team member Hailey Creps.

At the Film Challenge kickoff meeting held Friday, March 15, teams gathered with excitement to discover the specific elements to include in their films, such as line of dialogue, character, location, prop and genre. Each team was ready to embark upon their cinematic creative voyage. “We were excited to see what everyone thought of our film at the screening,” said Creps.

Amidst the ups and downs, filmmakers poured their hearts into their work. “The biggest hardship that we faced was getting the filming completed before Sunday so that our editor would have enough time to edit,” shared Creps.

Anticipation grew as the Spring 2024 Film Challenge film screening approached. “My team is very proud of our film and what we were able to create in the time we had,” remarked Creps.

Now that the event has concluded, the legacy of the Oregon Road Film Series Film Challenge endures. The creative works of the participating teams can be viewed on the OutCommPlus YouTube channel. Or vote in the People’s Choice for your favorite film with the QR code.
