Student Film Earns International Honors in Hollywood

 | 

THE STRONG ONE, a short film produced by a team of three NC State University seniors, received Best Picture and Best Director awards at this summer’s international Campus MovieFest (CMF) competition in Hollywood

The film is based on the poem, “Jurassic Parking Lot,” written by Tim Reavis, a senior in English with a concentration in creative writing. Reavis served as the film’s writer and also appears in the film. Josh Bielick, a Poole College of Management senior in business administration, was cinematographer. Nicholas Sailer, a senior in industrial design in the College of Design, served as director and screenwriter.

Reavis and Bielick, who graduated this spring, traveled with Sailer to Hollywood for the 11th annual red carpet CMF Hollywood Awards held at the Globe Theatre at Universal Studios in June. Their film was one of 200 selected from over 1,000 submissions during the 2011-2012 Campus MovieFest World Tour.
