Film screening Nov. 2 to help fund Heights High alum's next movie
Brandon Spring, a 2008 Cleveland Heights High School graduate, has had a longtime love affair with film. As a finalist, out of 200 Greater Cleveland students, in the 2008 Scenarios USA scriptwriting contest, Spring knew that writing, directing and filmmaking were in his future. Six years later, Spring is literally minutes away from Hollywood and pursuing his dream.
Spring earned an associate degree in business from Cuyahoga Community College, and now attends Biola University in La Mirada, Calif., where he studies and works in cinema and media arts production. As a writer and director, Spring has created several short films over the years, and is currently taking on his biggest film project yet, “Two Pink Lines,” a film that will explore love and romance between a husband and wife living in a futuristic utopian society.
To raise money for the film’s production, Spring’s family and friends are hosting a fundraiser on Sunday, Nov. 2, at the Cedar Lee Theatre. Tickets for the event, which will feature a showing of some of the short films that Spring has written and directed, are $21, and can be purchased online at www.clevelandcinemas.com. The price of the ticket includes popcorn and soda, and a wine-and-cheese tasting, and the event will also feature a silent auction.
While Spring already has his production team lined up, and access to state-of-the-art equipment from his university, he is seeking to raise $3,000 to fund this movie project, which is bigger, longer and more creative than anything he has ever done.
