Young film maker makes lemonade from lemons
17 February 2014
A student-produced quirky comedy about a teenager whose life was devoted to lemons has delighted audiences and received an honourable mention at the Bohemia: WA Campus Film Competition as part of Perth’s Fringe World Festival for 2014.
Written by Emily Roose and co-directed by Emily and Jampal Williamson, Communications students at The University of Notre Dame Australia’s Fremantle Campus, the short film Mr Citrus was one of only a handful of clips to be screened during the competition which featured the work of some of Western Australia’s most talented film makers.
The film’s concept even impressed well-known WA author Tim Winton who assisted the student project by donating a large box of lemons.
“I really enjoy the creative potential that videography has. You can combine sounds, music, colours and stories in unique ways, making it such an exciting art form,” Jampal said.
“Notre Dame has been very supportive with this project. I have definitely inherited a greater desire to pursue a media-related career since being at Notre Dame. The University has helped me connect with industry professionals which have provided me with great career insight.”
Notre Dame’s Communications Laboratory Manager on the Fremantle Campus, John Reed, congratulated Emily and Jampal on their achievements.
“Art always comes at a price and in our industry there will always be robust differences of opinion between creative people, but Emily and Jampal have come through this with a quirky and intelligent comedy that can win competitions and bring a smile to anyone’s face,” Mr Reed said.
“This is further tangible evidence of the growing reputation of screen production at Notre Dame.”
