BYU-produced Film First of Its Kind to Enter Theaters

Recommended Posts

Fire Creek, BYU’s first theatrically-released film, debuts Friday, May 8, in Cinemark theaters in Provo, Orem, American Fork, West Jordan, and Layton. The film, created by faculty and students from several departments across campus, is the first motion picture to be produced by undergraduate students at any university and released in theaters.

Produced as part of the expanded mentoring efforts of BYU, in which undergraduates have the opportunity to work on a professional-level project, Fire Creek was written, co-produced, directed, shot and edited by BYU students under the guidance of faculty and staff. Students also helped extensively in creating and performing the music, in greenlighting (approving) the film for production, and moving the film into distribution.

Sounds like a very interesting movie. Good for those students to see their hard work actually in theaters.

May 8, 2009 is not a good day to debut a movie, considering we all know where the majority of movie goers will be tonight. ;)

I must be out of the loop, so could you explain the significance of this date. :huh:
