Way Far Gone
Film by Brandon Nease (Drama) Actor, Producer, Camera and Electrical Department Burke (Jessejames Locorriere) is a self-loathing English teacher and failed writer, rocketing towards forty with no good years ahead that he can see. Never one to miss a bad decision, he reboots his sorry life with powerful doses of crystal meth stolen from a student (Veronica Longo). In doing so he crosses up a hook-handed drug dealer named Avery (John Ferguson), and falls for a mysterious woman in a dark wig, Serafina (Sarah-Jane Hill), who shares in Burke's insatiable addictions. Wanting to take Serafina and all the cash and drugs he can carry on his way out of town, Burke sneaks into the deep woods with a half-assed plan to rob Avery's meth lab. What happens there instead shocks Burke, Avery, and Serafina into realizing that nobody's life is a solo act. Written by Anonymous

Film (short) by Chase Kuertz (Drama) Writer, Editor, Director, Producer
Television by Simon Fuller (Music, Reality-TV and Game-Show) Production Assistant Twelve finalists and/or future singers (six men and six women) who were selected from America, compete in a talent contest in which they were asked to sing any song they like on this "Star Search" clone. After each song that was sung, the judges, Abdul, Jackson and Cowell, then critique that finalist's chosen song. After each show's ending, America must vote for a finalist to whom they really think their performance is good using this AT&T (now Cingular Wireless) or any other cellular phone to cast votes with. Once the votes are locked in, the judges and America decides who has the most and the least amount of votes, and the contestant with the least amount of votes is eliminated, and it goes on each week's show until the winner is crowned as "American Idol," where he/she wins a recording contract worth up to $1,000,000. The rest of the other finalists to whom they have been voted off before (the runner-up) also get recording contracts, too. Written by Gary Richard Collins II (firstname.lastname@example.org)
