Red Carpet Film Festival coming to Sam Noble museum

NORMAN — Moore Norman Technology Center’s Digital Video Production and Graphic Design classes will host the fifth annual Red Carpet Film Festival at 7 p.m. April 13 at the Sam Noble Museum in Norman. Tickets are $7 and must be purchased in advance due to limited seating.

The Red Carpet Film Festival promotes the expanding film community in Oklahoma and energizes the students’ creative spirit. The 10 short films to be shown during the event are the culmination of MNTC students’ work from the DVP and graphic design classes.

Students from the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma once again provided original scores and sound design for the movies. New this year, Chris Freihofer, CSA, with Freihofer Casting, worked with DVP students to learn the casting process. Freihofer Casting held an open casting call to find local talent for the movies.

In addition to the feature short films, DVP first year students and students from Great Plains Technology Center in Lawton and Tulsa Technology Center will present short shorts based on four provided titles.

Tickets may be purchased by cash or check at MNTC’s Franklin Road Campus inside the IT Building or by calling 364-5763, ext. 4120.
