Published DateNEW HAMPTON — The Newfound Film Making Club (NFMC) will host a double-feature movie premiere event on June 26 at 6 p.m. at the Gordon-Nash Library. The club will be showing two of it's original short films. Both are horror movies with a similar theme of "descending into insanity", but each is filmed in a very different style.
The two original, short films being featured at the event were written, directed, edited by and star members of the NFMC. The Club was founded in 2012 by Newfound Regional High School students, Sam Kench and Shaun Hathaway, as part of the Project Promise After School Program. Since its inception, in addition to making short films, the club has filmed several short comedy sketches and action shorts which can be viewed on Youtube at http://www.youtube.com/user/tamguardians2.
The first short film of the evening will be "Fading Humanity". The original screenplay was written by Kench and Hathaway. The film stars Kench and Hathaway as well as local theater favorite, Rebecca Turmel who starred as Peter in this year's Newfound Community Theater production of "Peter Pan".
The second film of the evening is the premiere of "A Lapse in Sanity" written and directed by Sam Kench. This is short black and white film with a very creepy, Darren Aronofsky feel.
The Newfound Film Making Club is open to all residents of the Newfound Region. For more information about meeting times, production schedules and more, visit the club's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/NewfoundFilmMakingClub
