The Digital Media Production students of the Gordon Cooper Seminole campus have just finished the production of a short film entitled “Misunderstood”. The movie was made for the Oklahoma Business Professionals of America ( BPA) film competition. The five-minute video tells the story of a fictional high school student named Jacob, and how bullying affects him and the drastic measures he takes to escape it.
The Team worked very hard on the film and faced freezing temperatures to film the outside scenes. The cast was made up of students in the program. Zac Tyner played the leading role of Jacob, Garrett McCoy and Josh Newman played the bullies. Cori Graham portrayed the role of Jacob’s mother. Chelsea Maddox portrayed Jacob’s best friend Sarah, Jackson Julien and Lacey Wiley portrayed TV news reporters.
The director and assistant directors were Zac Tyner and Josh Newman; Jackson Julien produced the film. The boom operators were Josh Lucas and Kevin Adams. The entire team worked very hard on the project and we wish them good luck in the competition, we’ll be keeping you posted so stay tuned for more!
