    Living With Ana film students

    Ballard Digital Filmmaking student-produced films took center stage at the Oct. 25 National Film Festival for Talented Youth (NFFTY). Seniors Saia Dugan, Marley Rankin (left and right in photo) and Olivia Flego-Wirth, along with 2019 graduate Violet Collins, won the Locals Only Audience Favorite Award with Living with Ana. The documentary details a young woman's battle with anorexia and how living with the disorder changed her and those who love her.

    Two other films were recognized:

    POLESKI shows how an eclectic artist and school bus driver's life is changed when he's offered his own gallery. The documentary was produced by 2019 grad Brendan Hickey, junior Owen Russell and senior Robert Miller.

    TIME COP - FIRST BLOOD In this 80's-inspired music video from 2019 grads Ethan Hawthorne-Dallas and Zane Rupp; as well as junior Skye Armstrong: A villain gets between the wrong man and his old flame. Time Cop returns to kick butt and take names!

    Also, Ballard had an Team in the 48 Hour Film Off event that is part of NFFTY. Although they didn’t win, their entry was shown.
