SCREENING OF “FLUORESCENT” SET FOR JAN. 9 AT GIBSON SOUTHERN
Gibson Southern alumnus Alison Goedde to screen her short film made in Haubstadt, Ind.
FORT BRANCH, Ind. Dec. 10, 2015 — Haubstadt native, Alison Goedde, will be screening her short film titled “Fluorescent” in the Gibson Southern High School Auditorium on Saturday, Jan. 9 at 2 p.m.
This past September, Goedde brought her film crew from Nashville, Tenn. to Haubstadt to shoot her senior short film project. The crew spent three full days in Haubstadt filming the short and edited it for about three months before submitting the final product to Goedde’s college, Watkins College of Art, Design, & Film, film festival.
“My crew and I have worked really hard on this film and I cannot wait for everyone back home to see it,” said Goedde. “I’ve always found Haubstadt had this certain beauty to it that can’t really be described with words, so I am glad that I was able to have the opportunity to convey that beauty on film.”
The screening at Gibson Southern will include a viewing of the short film, Q-and-A session with Goedde and a look behind the scenes. All of this will be open to the public; however, some scenes may be too graphic for children.
“This film is a highly-dramatized version of what it is like growing up in a small town, but I think people will still find it relatable,” said Goedde.
The Watkins screening of “Fluorescent” was the premiere of the film on Dec. 8. The film was awarded Best Musical Score, which Goedde composed herself as well.
