WCU student film accepted into 2012 Atlanta Shortsfest

Written by 

A senior project film created by Western Carolina University students last year has been accepted into the third annual Atlanta Shortsfest.

“Moses Cove” will be screened at the festival, which will be held Sept. 14-16, at the Goat Farm Arts Center in Atlanta. The event showcases more than 300 films from around the world.

Set in the Appalachian Mountains, “Moses Cove” conveys the struggle of a drug addict grappling with whether to risk his life to help a lost newcomer who has fallen prey to drug dealers.

Recent graduates of the Western Carolina University Motion Picture and Television Production Program Zach Heaton and Chris Read produced the film. Heaton, the film’s writer and cinematographer, and Read, the director, created the film on an approximately $5,000 budget. “Moses Cove” was the first student production to build a set on the new film stage in Ramsey Regional Activity Center.

Others who worked on the film include Christy Conyers as editor; Chris McAllister as music composer; and Joseph Callahan, Tommy Cooley, Andrew Drake and Madeline Seagle as members of the cast.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
