Presentation is an adaptation of the story “That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is In French” from King’s book “Everything’s Eventual“
Five video students and one audio student enrolled in the New England School of Communications (NESCom) at Husson University’s capstone class “VF441 Video Workshop,” created a video adaptation of a short story from noted Maine horror author Stephen King. The video is based on the short story, “That Feeling, You Can Only Say What It Is In French” from King’s book “Everything’s Eventual.”
Frank Welch, MEd, the instructor for the “VF441 Video Workshop,” shared the presentation with Stephen King prior to tonight’s screening. According to Welch, King wrote back after viewing the video and had very positive things to say about the presentation.
Interviews with Welch, senior NESCom leaders and participating students can be arranged upon request. Still photographs taken during the production process are also available.
Filmed entirely in Maine, this film is about a husband and wife taking their second honeymoon when they discover something is terribly amiss. The video presentation is 12 minutes long.
NESCom students were responsible for everything necessary to complete this film. Working on this project provided students with an outstanding experiential learning experience where students could engage in hands-on learning.
The outstanding creativity and production values inherent in this project are a testament to the quality of media education available to aspiring film and television professionals through the New England School of Communications.
This is not the first time NESCom has shared an outstanding student production based on a Stephen King story. In 2011-2012, the students of NESCom completed an adaption of Stephen King’s “The Last Rung on the Ladder,” which went on to win “Best Film in Maine” at the Lewiston Auburn Film Festival.
In addition, NESCom students produced a short-film adaptation of “The Tale of the Three Brothers” based on a story by J. K. Rowling. The presentation was filmed in various Maine locations during the Fall 2013 semester with post-production and editing completed in Spring 2014.
