November 2022 FilmBoot24 Films

What an amazing year! Thank you to Drew University and Orange School District for making our SIXTH year doing FilmBoot24 an unmitigated success! And we had a RECORD NUMBER of students and mentors. Starting on Friday night, over 60 high school students, college students and professional mentors teamed up to create 6 films in just 24 hours. And this year we had our first SPANISH LANGUAGE TEAM (Team 2) creating a film completely in Spanish! Each film had a theme drawn at random that was tied to their curriculum and each team had to use a A Bucket in some way in their film. Here they are for you to watch. Enjoy!!
