Huntington High School filmmakers turned in a strong showing at the state finals of the 10 Day Film Challenge at the UA Kaufman Astoria Cinemas in Queens on Friday.
Three Huntington High School films reached the state finals with Soundbite finishing third in the competition. The Soundbite team is comprised of Charlie Ehrman, Emma Pipolo, Jack Glicker, Jackie Caravetto and Lindsay Martin.
Billed as a “high school slice of life” film, Soundbite is now vying for a spot in the national finals on June 4 in Philadelphia. An announcement is expected next Friday.
The exceptionally creative team behind Soundbite.
Soundbite also won for Best Music and Best Poster and was nominated for Best Cinematography and Best Sound. A second Huntington High School film, Notes of Emotion, earned a nomination for Best Poster.
The contest requires teams of participants to write, shoot, edit and score a movie in just 10 school days during their film class period only.
The Notes of Emotion team features Celine Palermo, Luis Cuji, Tania Ulloa and Marco Caporuscio. Huntington’s third film in today’s contest was Left to Write, which was created by a team that included Noah Morris, Griffin Bluemer, Erick Joya-Amaya, David Mosden and Thomas Friebolin.
