The Communications students at The Masters University have produced over a dozen short films and one feature film over the past six years. They’ve produced everything including drama, mystery, comedy, science fiction, film noir, and musical. This semester, they got to try their hands at creating a western.
The cast and crew met for three long days at Whitehorse Ranch in Landers, California, the location where Sam Elliott and Lil Nas X shot their famous 2020 Superbowl commercial for Doritos. The production included horses, actual firearms, a dolly, camera jib, and a team made up of over 60 students, professors, and professionals. Koren Young from Arcay studios worked closely with the audio production students on recording clean production dialog on-set. We’re looking forward to collaborating with them again on the post production sound.
