Brooks Institute proudly announces: “Exposure 2013,” a stunning showcase of our most recent and lauded student works reflecting the best of the Institute’s venerable Film and Visual Journalism programs.
The showcase spans all genres including Narrative, Documentary, Multimedia, Commercial and Music Videos.
Some of the highlights of the narrative film program include Tara Atashgah’s “For The Birds,” an MFA short feature recently selected as an official entry in the 2013 Montreal Film Festival. Ms. Atashgah is being hailed by many as a gifted Iranian-American filmmaker in the tradition of Oscar-nominated Asghar Farhadi (“A Separation”).
Also being screened is Kevin Huang’s “Sunset On Cabrillo,” a hilarious mockumentary in the tradition of Christopher Guest’s “Waiting For Guffman.” “Sunset On Cabrillo” was the winner of the Santa Barbara Film Festival’s 10-10-10 competition, in which students are given ten days to make a film under ten minutes long.
Admission to this exciting, fast-moving event is free and open to the public, family, and all members of the Southern California film, television, documentary and journalism communities.
Brooks Institute was founded in 1945 as a school for aspiring professional photographers, and has since added programs in Film, Visual Journalism, and Graphic Design.
