When does the three-peat Oscar champ get to sneak in to a good screening, MovieGuy?

Do you guys think it can top last years local film "Forgotten Justice" ?

Forgotten Justice is peanuts in comparison. Lullaby has a story one can follow, unlike the previously mentioned BPCC slop. Perhaps I'm biased because I wasted a semseter of my life there, but BPCC doesn't actually have a film program. It doesn't even really let its students work on the summer films. It's all directed, written, and filmed by adults working at/with the school. Students get to do PA work and they aren't actually learning PA work properly. In addition, there are several actors used over and over again.

If you want to learn film, take a look at UT or even SFA in Nacogdoches if you want to learn film. BPCC has a video program specializing in news broadcast. It infuriates me when people talk about BPCCs "film" program. They should take that title off their program that doesn't exist and think about getting some teachers with industry experience- or perhaps just a knowledge of what is HD and not HD, widescreen or not, 24 frames vs 30 frames, lens characteristics vs camera characteristics. That would be a start.

Hey, give BPCC a little credit! They have to operate on a "0" budget and that severely limits what they can do. They re-use actors because its hard to find quality actors locally who can dedicate all their time for a month for free. After all, this is Louisiana, not Texas. I think they do well for what they have, although I agree they do need to get more serious about the quality of their film program. However, if the money isn't available, they can't do very much. Maybe someone out there can help them out? Unfortunately, they didn't have millions of dollars to produce a film like THE LAST LULLABY, so don't be too hard on them. If they had several million dollars, I bet they could make a film that would get people talking. Remember, BPCC does STUDENT films for learning, not for profit or mass distribution. The program will get better with time, and money.
