The Shoreline Short Shorts Film Festival (SSSFF) presented the prize for Best Student Film to students from Ballard’s Digital Filmmaking Program last night at Shoreline Community College. Zach Boone, PJ Hase, Aidan Jereczek & Bailey Wall won the award for their film Bottled Emotions. The short concerns a man with the magical ability to steal and bottle other people’s emotions. Another short by Ballard film students, I’ll be There by Maureen Brown, Claude Brun and Veronica Redpath, was also an Official Selection at the festival.
The festival accepts work from professional filmmakers as well as college and high school students throughout Washington. From 91 films submitted, only 14 were selected for the festival. This is the second annual event, and the second year in a row that students from Ballard's Digital Filmmaking Program have been prize-winners at the festival.
Both shorts can be seen on the Digital Filmmaking Program's vimeo page.
