Salve Studios to premiere first film, “The Final Cut”
Salve Studios, the University’s student-run film and video production club, will premiere its first film, “The Final Cut,” at 6 p.m. Friday, April 1 in the Bazarsky Lecture Hall.
The 25-minute horror/slasher film tells the story of a college-aged woman and her friends who venture onto the Cliff Walk after dark and are stalked by the woman’s psychotic filmmaker ex-boyfriend.
The project was spearheaded by Salve Studios co-presidents Lily Margaret Jones ’17 and Ryan “Buddy” Colwell ’17. “As film minors, we learn a lot about film theory, and some of the most interesting work is done on horror films, particularly slasher films,” Jones said. “I was also personally inspired by my time here in Newport during the summer and how creepy the Cliff Walk could be in the evening. It’s beautiful, but it can also be very dangerous.”
In addition to Jones and Colwell, the crew includes Juan Roldan ’16, Kyla Russell ’18, Jack Farrell ’18, Alana Boulter ’18, Ellena Sweet ’16 and Stephanie Menders ’17. The cast includes Mariana Bracciale ’16, Nathaniel Flachs ’18, Laura Jedynasty ’17, Dean Wollenberg ’16, Colin Burke ’17 and Sofia Talbot ’17.
Admission is free and concessions will be served.
