Golden Valley High hosts film competition

Santa Clarita Valley could discover the next George Lucas or witness the next "American Graffiti" Saturday at Golden Valley High School.

The school's advanced video classes will be competing in a film competition to be judged by Golden Valley video production professor Charles Deuschle and industry professionals Jason Edwards and Melina Adduci of Living the Dream Productions.

Four teams of six will have 12 hours, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., to assemble a script, rehearse, shoot, edit, and transfer the completed film to DVD.

Outside of organizing actors and crew and finding a location, the film must be completed in that 12-hour period.

The time crunch will teach students "to put together a film in a short amount of time, and how to work as a team, which is important in the film industry," said Deuschle.

Films will be judged on creativity, genre and technicality. Screenings and final judgment will be held in Golden Valley's video production room starting at 8 p.m. The winning team will receive donated prizes such as movie passes and movie scheduling software.

Working with the expertise and professional production equipment of Living the Dream Productions is an exciting prospect for the students.

"The students are really looking forward to it," said Deuschle.
