Join us on Thursday night, May 1, at 7:30PM for an
evening of film premiers at The Bama Theatre.
"The Deadstring Brothers - Live At The Bama Theatre"
is a concert film produced by UA professor Joey
Goodsell.  Professor Goodsell and a dozen  students
from the Department of Telecommunications and Film
used multiple state-of-the-art digital cameras,
lighting,  and sound equipment to capture The
Deadstring Brothers' performance at The Bama on
October 17 of last year.  The completed DVD will be
presented for the first time on Thursday night in the
venue where the actual performance took place.
Enjoy the irony of juxtaposition and the excellent
concert footage as "Deadstring Brothers - Live At The
Bama Theatre" has its world premier at 7:30PM!
Following The Deadstring Brothers DVD, UA's Department
of Telecommunications and Film will present its annual
Capstone Project.
The Department of Telecommunications and Film offers
an upper level
production class( TCF 442, Advanced Video Projects)
during the spring
semester each year. Alumnus and director Tom Cherones,
some of who's
work includes "Desperate Housewives", "NewsRadio", and
primary director
of "Seinfeld", acts as the faculty advisory for the
class. Also, Carol
Richards, Cherones' assitant and Tom Azzari,
professional art director,
come to mentor the students.  The class consist of
10-12 junior and
senior TCF majors who are chosen based on an
application process.
Tom chooses the script from a screen writing class at
the University.
This year Spence Dodson's, a senior TCF major, "Ego
Break" was chosen
for the project.
The main goal for the class is to produce a 30 minute
short film over
the span of 3-4 weeks. Each student is assigned a
job/s and the
processes of preproduction, production, and
post-production are all
of the learning experience.
The students hope to gain a real world, hands-on
experience that will
help them transition into the film making profession.

Ego Break is short comedy that follows Mike, a young
man tormented by
his bullied childhood at kiddie summer care. Years
later, at his work
place, he is confronted by his bully, and forced to
stand up to him
and for all.
Admission is free to the public for both films.
