Champlain student filmmakers appear on FOX 44

Champlain students Serena Gauthier and Anna Cuevas guest-starred on the FOX 44 “Community Matters” segment with their film professor Julia Swift on Oct. 20. The students debuted a film together at the Vermont International Film Festival. Both juniors, Gauthier and Cuevas spent their sophomore year collaborating on a film for one of their classes. Cuevas describes Don’t Touch the Camera as a documentary “about gender inequality in the film industry from the perspective of seven female students at Champlain.”

Kennedy Trabold and Aenea Thorne, also Champlain students, edited the commercial for this year’s Vermont International Film Festival.

“Our AV editing teacher told us that Julia Swift had a project she wanted us to work on,” said Trabold.

Thorne and Trabold received links to the trailers and instructions on how to download them for use. From there, each student made her own trailer and submitted them to Swift who combined the trailers. The commercial opened the “Community Matters” segment.
