January 26, 2018 11:45 AM
Joliet West High School senior Brandon Peck enjoyed an extraordinary summer experience working on a film set for Fresh Films, a non-profit film production company based on the campus of Augustana College, a leading Midwest liberal arts college in Rock Island, IL.
Teens applied online by completing a questionnaire of basic information as well as several short answer questions, including why they wanted to be involved in the program and what kind of TV pilot they would make if they had the chance.
Fresh Films then narrowed down the applicants and selected about 15 teens for the Chicago-area program. There were at least 50 other applicants for the Chicago program.
During this summer experience, Brandon worked on the set of "MISKITS.” Peck was a great candidate for this opportunity, having attained high honors for excellent semester grades, an honorable mention for short fiction in the SPC Literary Conference last year, and was recently awarded the AP Achievement Award in English Language and Composition.
