Nine UO students won awards in the recent Adrenaline Film Project, including members of the College of Arts and Sciences and the journalism and architecture and allied arts schools.
The Adrenaline Film Project is an intensive film production competition in which filmmakers pitch, write, shoot and edit their films in just 72 hours. Each team is assigned a genre and given a line of dialogue and a prop to incorporate into its film.
Two of the CAS students, Jacob Salzberg and Noah Phillips-Edwards, were part of a team that won the $300 Ben Kalb Jury Award for their heist-genre film “Taking Tibet.” Salzberg is a double major in cinema studies and journalism and Phillips-Edwards is a double major in cinema studies and philosophy. Journalism student Derek Brown was the third member of the “Taking Tibet” film team.
Another CAS student, Japanese and digital arts major Elijah Sprints, was part of a team that won the $300 Mentor Award for a film in the revenge genre, “Get Your Fill.” With Sprints on the team were digital arts majors Colin Zeal and Talon Sherer.
