Senior and 2015 Berkeley Student Film Festival Winner, Victoria Metzger, received a standing ovation for her darling video featuring our very own senior, Rachel Anderson, and her real-life boyfriend Kevin Newman. The film tugged on a few heart strings, and there was not a single dry eye in the house. Victoria shares her genius with us as to how this was all put together.

Q: How did you come up with the film idea?

A: The theme was Perspectives, so I just kept thinking about different types of perspectives, which led to perspectives of other people, which evolved into the final video.


Q: Did your vision come alive? Did the film change as it was developed? Or was it true to your original preconception of it?

A: Yes, my vision came alive. One thing that changed was the location, but it was still true to the original preconception


Q: What goes into all of this? What’s the equipment and level of commitment you used for this project?

A: I used a DSLR to film it and it was a short, simple video so it was not very difficult.


Q: How long did it take to prep, record, and edit?

A: There was not much prep involved. It took about 2-3 hours to film, and several hours to edit.


Q: Was this the only video you entered? What was your application process for it? How did you hear about your win? What was your reaction?

A: Yes, this video was the only one I entered in this contest. The application process was simple, I just had to put the video on a flash drive and bring it to Berkeley. I heard about my win from my next door neighbor who goes to Berkeley and I was very excited when I found out!
