Seniors of Lycoming College’s Video and Film Arts program will present more than a dozen short films at a screening on April 21 at 7 p.m. in the Community Arts Center in downtown Williamsport.

The films represent a variety of genres including narrative, documentary, 2D animation, motion graphic animation, claymation and silhouette stop motion animation. Students select the genre and focus of their films and produce it over the course of a year.

“I am excited by the variety of genres that our seniors have chosen to work in this year,” said Leah Peterson, associate professor of film and video arts and director of the film and video arts program. “The films showcase the students’ artistic development and their ability to connect emotionally and intellectually with audiences of all ages.”

The films, which run between five and 11 minutes, include:

“Wasted,” motion graphic animation, created by Jennifer Carmody.
“The Mollia Upset,” narrative, created by Christopher Cizek.
“Sirens,” 2D animation, created by Hannah DiMattia.
“Fighting For The Underdog,” documentary, created by Andrew Gipe.
“Ramona,” documentary, created by Jason Graff.
“Gentle Justin,” narrative, created by Robert Hoffman.
“The Longest Ride,” documentary, created by Casey Martindale.
“ Sophia,” silhouette stop motion animation, created by Alexandra Meyers.
“Home Alone,” 2D animation, created by Eddie Phan.
“The Immortalis Project,” 2D animation, created by Seth Roden.

“We are grateful for the support of our campus and local communities over the years and we hope you will join us for another interesting and enjoyable evening this year,” said Peterson.
