Cool short films by KCC students!

Every semester, KCC offers Digital Film/Storytelling (ART 157), giving students the opportunity to learn to make their own films, from start to finish. Check out, below, a few of the films completed during the Fall 2010 semester by Noah Murray, Jana Rothenberg (Makauwahi Cave), Gabriel Abrams (Perfect World), and Joseph Turner (The Ride). You’ll see how each student has really developed his/her own unique style!
