Lainey Auwarter ’19 (shown right in her role in this year's production of Henry V) was one of only four (from a pool of sixteen) film scripts that will be produced by the Grandin Theatre Foundation's Film Lab as a feature film. The Grandin Film Lab introduces high school students to cinema and the behind-the-scenes workings of film making. Run by Ian Fortier and Tyler Lyon, the program will help transform these four scripts of different genres into short films. The students will join together and take on the different roles required to produce a film such as producer, director of photography, editor, and sound mixer. Lainey's script is a thriller entitled "Thanatophobia," and chronicles three rebellious teens who meet in a cemetery and, through mishaps, relive the deaths of people buried there. She says, "This is my first time doing something as large in scale as this, and I'm very excited to start the process of making a film." She called on other North Cross students to audition for parts in the film during assembly this week. We look forward to the premiere and congratulate her for earning this unique opportunity.
