We're always bringing you bigger news -- big names, professional projects and the like, but sometimes its nice to hear about the unknowns and the fresh talent who might one day make it big. I thought I'd share a particularly fun and cool student film that's currently making waves. The short is called Process Enacted, and it's a sophomore final for RIT student Jordan Greenhalgh. Before I say anything more about it, go watch the clip here -- but be warned, the music can be insidiously catchy. I'll wait.

Now that you've seen it, I want to tell you how it was made -- old school, all with regular photography. The process, straight from Greenhalgh: "I used Polaroid 600 film to capture all of my imagery. During the development phase of each image, the Polaroids were manipulated to create lines and shapes as well as pulling some emulsion completely off. After shooting all of the Polaroids (987 to be exact), I re-shot them in black limbo with a Canon digital SLR. The end result is my film, Process Enacted. There is no digital compositing or computer trickery...just what was in front of the lens." Sure, it's no unheard-of amazing feat, but in a world where computers can do it all for you, and coming from a 2nd-year student, that's an extremely classy and smooth short. It's nice to see how some old or simple equipment can do just as much as a few clicks of your mouse. Good job, Jordan.
