RAWR Productions Presents: 'The O'Malley Factor' (VIDEO)

East Haven High School students showcase their film-making talents with "The O'Malley Factor," a submission to the Connecticut Student Film Festival's "84 Hour Film Challenge."

Who needs "CSI: Miami" — East Haven's got "The O'Malley Factor."

Media Club (aka RAWR Productions), working with the club's instructor Jay Miles, crafted the short film as their submission to the Fall CCC 84hr Film Challenge.

The challenge is sponsored by the Connecticut Student Film Festival.

The Real East Haven, a new Facebook page that looks to share positive stories from throughout the town, gives us the low-down on RAWR's submission to the challenge:

The students, under the tutelage of teacher Jay Miles, participate in The Connecticut Student Film Festival challenge in which they are given a set of criteria for their production and then have 84 hours to plan, film, edit and submit their entry.

The Connecticut Student Film Festival is a result of a collaborative effort by Connecticut business, government, K–12 education, higher education, and not-for-profit organizations that support programs for Connecticut urban and suburban students and teachers. The films are judged by a panel of industry professionals and college faculty.

Selected films are short listed into categories and presented at the festival which takes place annually. Students in technical education/media instructor Jay Miles’ studio video classes have won many first place awards in the past couple years.

And we would like to extend an open offer to RAWR Productions to upload and post their work right here on East Haven Patch. We'd love to help publicize and share your excellent work and passion for film with our readers, and the community as a whole. No matter how short or how long — let's get watching!
