Last night the Landers Theatre did not put on play but rather a show of the visual arts on a screen.
The First Annual Springfield Little Film Festival presented four short student films.
KSMU's Erika Brame spoke with the directors and producers and files this report.
The four stories presented on the big screen were, Nothing Rhymes with Orange, Apollo, Or Not to Be, and The Death of Alfred Bailey.
Each story takes a look at life, death, and science fiction.
Or Not to Be was the comedic relief for the evening starring the cast and crew on what it takes to make a film.
The Death of Alfred Bailey shed a bright light on the dark side of death.
Nothing Rhymes with Orange takes a look at the life of one couch and three women who come to own it and their lives.
The final performance of the night, Apollo, centers on a married couples' life without the sun.
Jonathan Stratman is the co-producer of The Death of Alfred Bailey.
He says film is something you have to love.
"Sometimes when we're all on set and we've been working I don't know, seven, ten hours something like that it's the middle of the night. I am looking around and I am seeing everyone just there on their own it's like, 'Why are we here?' And some one turn to me one time and said, 'Well because we're doing what we love!' And it was really cool it was like yeah we are here because we want to do this and it didn't matter."
Rachel Skidmore is the writer and director of Nothing Rhymes with Orange.
She says a major challenge for her film was the editing process.
"It was really difficult for us because we did three separate stories about three completely different characters. And figuring out a way to integrate their lives and their stories and to have that make sense. We got down to a week before we were showing it for the first time and basically tore it apart and not to say started over, but we had a lot of work to do."
Skidmore's film Nothing Rhymes with Orange will also show at the Moxie on June 24th and 25th at 6 p.m.
All the students on these projects took part of the screen writers' certificate program and plan to continue filmmaking.
