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!
