Short People

November 17, 2009

Honey Trap, the latest directorial effort from MPS Live Action Short Film Department Chair Bob Giraldi, is having its official premiere this week as part of the 18th Annual Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival. The 12-minute short film stars music icon Debbie Harry and, according to the film’s producers, “is a dark story of sex, betrayal and murder that is an exercise in the art of seduction with a passionate and unexpected turn.” Honey Trap was edited by faculty member Patrick Burns, Jr., and can be viewed here:

In addition to Burns and many other industry professionals who have already signed on, Giraldi is continuing to build an impressive list of faculty for the new MPS program’s fall 2010 launch. Rachel Leventhal—an executive producer, writer and creator at Mama Makes Movies—has joined the department to teach screenwriting; and Susi Korda—a producer, story and editing consultant for the documentary Disturbing the Universe: Radical Lawyer William Kunstler—will be teaching courses in editing.
