Harper College Film Club is a group of students in Palatine, IL that gather weekly because of a shared love for film. Among them are potential actors, writers, artists, shooters and editors. With the goal of making a film, they enrolled in the first ever Reel Illinois Film Competition along with students from a handful of community colleges throughout the state. I’m excited about the program because it encourages transferring film students to get some film experience while working toward an Associates Degree.
They’re excited about it because it involves cash prizes! The top 3 teams will earn prizes up to $1000! As part of the judging process, they need to get as many views to their YouTube link. Below is their submission, What Makes You Go Forward? They currently have the second-highest view count, with McHenry County College within striking distance. Harper College has posted their link to their Homepage and sent the link out through social media and a newsletter. Please keep them moving forward by sharing the link with your family and friends. It’s a quick and easy way to support emerging filmmakers!
