Film is art, right? We made a student film.

Click here, friends.

For my Insect Diversity course this semester, we had to make a short film about a relevant topic of our choosing, in lieu of a final exam. Our group chose the Cordyceps fungus, and made a mock horror movie trailer. That’s my labmate’s YouTube account; he did most of the editing. I wrote and directed (mostly–we all had input) and all three of us acted. We did our own stunts. I think we were the only group (out of 16) who had the sense to use a tripod. I swear to fuck, the hardest part was getting the credits to work because iMovie had it out for us.

 

If you’re curious, Ryan Vazquez (special thanks) was our hard-suffering TA who not only unlocked the teaching lab and supervised us so that we could get the laboratory shots, but also rigged up a handy little mechanism with some tubing and a beaker, and used it to blow chalk dust into our faces for the fungal spore money shot. (Oh, and he’s the doctoral candidate of my Ichthyology professor. The department is a little incestuous in that regard.)

 

I don’t know, we worked too fucking hard on this piece of fuck for it to only be seen by a group of disinterested students, so I thought some of ya’ll might appreciate it.

Hope you guys get/got a real decent grade, ’cause I thought it was pretty cool, and you all definitely out the effort in. Strange as it may sound, I would watch a movie in which you die by zombie virus.

I think we’re probably going to get an A, based on some comments from the TA. Also, I emailed the professor about an unrelated topic, and she mentioned that she liked our video, offhandedly.

Not bad for a couple of STEM majors, right? I don’t want to brag, but I think we had the best film of the class, at least in terms of actual video quality. ( @neverthrive can confirm.) Some of the other groups filmed theirs with their freakin’ cell phones…

 

Although, to be  fair, ours was less educational than most, I think. We…took some liberties. Although everything in the voice overs, and the bit about Cisplatin, that’s all true. They actually derive a lot of stuff from Cordyceps and its relatives, which is pretty cool.
