Flashing Lights Wild Art


Film is known for glamor; for flashing lights and constant camera exposure. On Thursday night, however, hidden in the back corners of the CMB, bathed with the less-than-glamorous darkness of studio 4D were some of UT’s own Radio-Television-Film students. Led by director/cinematographer and UT professor Steve Mims, the RTF students were involved in the production of The One-Offs, a short film written and directed by Mims. The crew built two sets for separate scenes, lit them with precisely chosen lights and gels, and filmed with Canon’s recently released C300 camera- a camera not yet available to the public. The sets were built from scratch in about two hours, and just a few takes and a couple of hours later, students were striking (or, picking up) the set. By eleven o’clock, studio 4D existed as a hollow space once again, So much for glamor.
