SCF Graduates and Students Work on "Blind Pass" Film
(Bradenton, Fla., December 15, 2011) – State College of Florida, Manatee–Sarasota (SCF) Film Program students and graduates are participating in the production of Steve Tatone's thriller, "Blind Pass," by Sarasota-based independent film production company Midnight Pass Productions.
The assistant director is a graduate of SCF and several SCF Film Program interns are working as production assistants for "Blind Pass," which includes a scene filmed at SCF Venice.
Nearly 500 students are enrolled in SCF's film/integrated media courses, which are taught at campuses in Bradenton, Venice and Lakewood Ranch.
SCF students' involvement with the production is the latest contribution in promoting a film culture in the local area. Directors and producers regularly call on SCF Film Program students to assist in local video and movie productions.
Under the leadership of Del Jacobs, SCF multimedia/film program manager, SCF was named by MovieMaker magazine as one of 25 two-year colleges listed among "the world's best film schools," citing the Film Program's diverse curriculum and internship opportunities.
Students can earn Associate in Science in Multimedia/Film that prepares graduates for a professional career or an Associate in Arts degree for university transfer. Graduates of the SCF Film Program transfer to other schools, go to work in the industry nationwide, create their own businesses or start their careers in local media.
