On Monday, August 11 The Los Angeles Film School presented a screening of Mega Summer Hit, a “dunkumentary,” produced by LAFS alum Kyle Newacheck (Workaholics). The film centers around a group of filmmakers as they embark upon an online video contest while shooting a documentary.

After watching Mega Summer Hit, Joe Byron and Kyle Newacheck talked about the process of making the film.

We’ve been editing this for 5 months.

Initially, the film was modest in vision, and over time it grew into a full-fledged feature film, consuming Kyle and friends’ weekends with production.

Initially this was going to be a 10 minute video, and it grew from there..

Kyle discussed his origins as a filmmaker, and how he connects with today’s’ LAFS students.

Ever since I was little I’ve had a camera in my hand. I’m sure many of you were the same.

As the Q&A came to a close, Kyle Newacheck reflected on his ambitions as a filmmaker.

I couldn’t imagine doing anything else for a living.

Thank you all for attending this event, and stay tuned about upcoming events, screenings, and Q&A’s!
