Though the juniors originally planned on recreating the movie, High School Musical,” due to a lack of class participation they decided to recreate the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. So far, the class has filmed many short skits that can be regularly seen on the Tonight Show, such as “Mean Tweets.”
By recreating scenes people already know and love the class hopes to get students excited over their production.
Gillian Rea, ’16, is the co-director of the junior NOTS movie. She believes that the Jimmy Fallon show was a good choice, because it didn’t require a large number of students to be on screen at once. Rea hopes this often watched TV-series will increase the productions popularity.
“When we decided to film a recreation of the Jimmy Fallon show I was really excited,” Rea said. “I love watching his show each week, and I hope the rest of the student body is able to relate to this film and understand where the jokes are coming from. I have had an excellent group of students who are committed to this production, and their help has been invaluable. We hope all the parents and students appreciate our movie and all the work that went into creating it.”
One of the head actors of the junior NOTS film is Tyler Breedlove, ’16. Tyler has played a major role in the production of the film since it first started. He has made the effort to attend every meeting and help in any way he can. Breedlove believes his acting and natural sense of humor help the storyline flow naturally.
“When we originally started filming for High School Musical, I was cast to play the main character,” Breedlove said. “As things started changing I told the directors I still wanted to be involved and help any way I could. I was able to play a main role in many of our skits and help write them as well. I can’t wait to see our movie on the big screen at NOTS.”
Whether or not the junior class wins the award for best picture, students involved thoroughly enjoyed their experience, and look forward to making another movie next year.
All the high school movies will be on display the morning of March 28 for parents and public view, and also to vote for the awards, from 9-11 a.m. in the Green Room. For more information, contact [email protected]
