The Portal Movie

Brio Integrated Theatre is leading the production of a movie entitled “The Portal” a film written by two students Nick Stavre from the LABBB Collaborative at Burlington High School  and Alex Sturm from Winchester High School. The film was made possible through a CHNA 15 grant which funded “Lights, camera, Action!” a year-long series of improvisational workshops that introduced students with special needs from Burlington High School LABBB to filmmaking, idea development, screenwriting, editing, and cinematography.

The Portal is a heart-warming comedy/fantasy film about friendship and accepting the differences in ourselves and others. This project includes 75 participants from Burlington, Winchester and Woburn (film crew, costume design, props, editing, writing, music, research) . The film features 21 actors with special needs from the LABBB Collaborative at Burlington High School and interns from Winchester and from NUPATH in Woburn  The film also includes technical support from local cable access stations BCAT  and WinCAM.

The film will be debuted on June 7th at the Fogelberg Performing Arts center at Burlington High School  at 7:00 PM.
