Guest post by Elizabeth Roell, co-host of A Place for Film: The IU Cinema Podcast.
If you thought the filmmaking process was difficult, just imagine what it would be like to make a film during the global COVID pandemic. Well, there is a group of IU students that doesn’t have to imagine, because they did just that! For this week’s episode of A Place for Film: The IU Cinema Podcast, I sat down with the team behind the short film Amici Novum. Writer and director Alex Kopnick, composer Daniel Cueto, and sound designer Joey Miller walk me through the collaborative process of filmmaking and how they were able to put their passions and talents together to create an out-of-this-world film. Literally!
Amici Novum will be closing IU Cinema’s ninth annual Double Exposure program this Friday night, April 9th, at 7 pm.
Join IU Cinema on April 9 for Double Exposure 2021, a virtual presentation of new short films with new scores created by student filmmakers and composers from The Media School and Jacobs School of Music.
This program is sponsored by The Media School, the Jacobs School of Music, the departments of Composition and Audio Engineering and Sound Production, the Music Scoring for Visual Media Program, and IU Cinema.
