HEART OF THE HOOD played 40,000 big screens

Filmmakers Sean Grasse ('13) and Sam Bengtson (BA '13) made it to the finals of Sprite Films with their well received Heart of the Hood entry, but it was Elon College in North Carolina that took home both the "audience favorite" and Green Panel award in the competition.

A behind-the-scenes trailer made by a Columbia College crew played in 40,000 movie theaters during the month of August. CA+S faculty members Adam Jones, Bonnie Winer, Charles Celander and Karen Loop oversaw the project. 

The Advanced Production Center will announce later this year when applications are available for the next Sprite Films competition
