  • Warrior Film Fest Success!

    We are incredibly proud of Cole & Cooper Speck for their outstanding work on their senior capstone project, The Warrior Film Fest! The project had two objectives: First, to provide an opportunity for students in the arts to compete and showcase their creativity. Second, to encourage people with little or no experience in filmmaking to give it a shot without worrying about their skill level.

    Cole & Cooper organized an event where participants were invited to submit a three-minute short film of any genre. The films were evaluated based on criteria such as Best Sound Design, Best Cinematography, Best Screenplay, Most Creative, The Audience Choice Award, and Best Motion Picture. The winner of Best Motion Picture received a cash prize of $250. The event was held at Central Cinemas Knoxville.

    Well done, Warriors! #CAKHighSchool #WarriorNetwork
