Campbell's film chosen for LA Festival

  "The Big White Wall," a film by 1998 Elon communications graduate Jonathan Campbell, has been selected for the Los Angeles International Short Film Festival. The 31-minute film, written, directed and produced by Campbell, is one of about 200 chosen for the festival, which will be held Oct. 15-20.

Filmmakers and directors from other festivals will be in attendance, and Campbell said if all goes according to plan the exposure in Los Angeles will create more interest in his film. "What I'm hoping is that the filmmakers and directors at this festival may see it and think, 'Hey, I wonder if it is entered in our festival,'" Campbell said in a recent article in the Burlington (N.C.) Times-News.

"The Big White Wall" deals with one man's bout with depression. It has only one line of dialogue; the bulk of the story is told through characters’ facial expressions and body language. It was filmed in Burlington and Yanceyville, N.C., and on a set at Piedmont Community College in Yanceyville.

Campbell owns Emotive Media, a Burlington-based company that produces corporate and broadcast video projects. He also teaches part-time in the film and video technology program at Piedmont Community College in Roxboro, N.C.
