A public sneak peak at the city’s next feature film will be delivered in City council tonight as the students from LV Rogers Secondary School begin promotion of their two-hour production, Project Turquoise Snowflake.
The two student producers of the film, Matt Howroyd and Olivia Bogaard, as well as director, writer and drama teacher from LVR, Robyn Sheppard, will be giving people a view of the resources they will be using for the production of the film.
The project is deemed ambitious and experimental, with students from grades nine through 12 working with professional volunteers during pre-production.
The film is a coming of age story about Carly Dutoff, a doukhobor girl growing up in the Kootenay region with her curmudgeonly deda during her final year of high school.
“An ardent environmentalist, Carly’s sense of urgency, unyielding determination and belief that there is still hope for the world spark a youth-driven plan, which impacts not only her small town but also the entire country,” read the letter the students had sent to council.
