On June 7th, The Portal Part 1 was debuted at the Fogelberg Performing Arts Center in Burlington with a Hollywood-style Screening: limos, red carpet, paparazzi, awards and interviews with BCAT. Part 1 of The Portal was funded by CHNA 15 and a successful Kickstarter campaign which was completed on June 10th will fund Part 2 of the Portal. The full movie will premier in October of 2016.
During May and June, we have been shooting Part 2 of the The Portal and will try to finish up in July with the help of local access stations BCAT and WinCAM. The Portal is a movie written by high school students, Alexandra Sturm (Winchester intern) and Nick Stavre (LABBB intern).
This fantastical story is based on the collaboration of all the LABBB students. It has a normal high school and a magical high school. The LABBB students are the actors, production assistants, and doing voice overs. Brio interns helped with research, costumes and props. Local Winchester resident and WinCAM independent producer, Margo Attaya is the filmmaker and editor for the film.
