Lake Superior State University business administration/marketing student Justin Beach, second from the right, directs a cast and crew through his cinema vision that doubles as a two-credit course. Beach’s short film follows the trials and tribulations of an incoming LSSU student who negotiates the high expectations and anxieties of her doting, helicopter-type parents.
Here Beach shoots a kitchen scene in Lukenda Alumni House, which also offered up a living room setting during an all-day shoot on Feb. 7. Shown from left is Coutrney Buzzell (behind light); actors at the table Hannah Connor, Susan Kirkman, and Ben Eisenman; crew in back Cassie Erdman, Dani Weng, Justin Beach, and Kyler Hotlen. Look for a release through YouTube some time later this semester. Run a Web search on “discover LSSU” to learn more about all areas of study at Lake State.
