NESCOM Students Produce Film Based on Popular Book Series


BANGOR - It's based off of a book and these students are spending time outside of the classroom to put it all together.

Over and over and over these students are bringing their project "The Tale of Three Brothers" to life as a movie.

Many students from campus have come together and spent months piecing together the short film.

“This is the first project that we’re actually able to incorporate a lot of different departments; so we got audio working, we had the graphic design department working on posters and what not. So it’s just pretty cool to have a bunch of different departments working on one project,” says movie director Brandon Doyen.

The 21 minute movie is based on a short story by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling.

With casting and filming now finished, audio production is in full swing. Actors are now re-voicing lines for the movie.

Those in the film explain the reason for the voicing.

“I was recording to get my lines head because there was some background things that were happening to make my lines not heard,” explained Emma Campbell, an actress in the film.

After taking years to obtain the rights to this film, it finally has a preview date here at the Gracie Theater at Husson University.

“I really like the fact that we were able to get this, I know there’s a lot of bigger film schools out there and NESCOM isn’t as well known, but I think this will help kind of put us on the map a little bit more,” says film producer Tim Reid.

Post-production is expected to run through late April.

The group says that there is much left to finish.

That means more time on top of what has already been spent on the project.

“There are probably hundreds of hours of time put into this project,” says Doyen.

However much more it takes, Reid is just glad they have received this opportunity.

The first viewing for the movie will take place in early May. Their hope is to have the movie shown at a film festival.
