Winner of the 360 Filmmakers Challenge Complete 360 Award – Fall 2016

From the filmmaker: “I hope to show a different side of drama students and the drama community. I also wanted to not only prove how producing a show is a serious and complex process, but to convey the uniqueness of having a fun and loving community of students work alongside you towards a common goal.”
