Offering high school students an international stage to exhibit their work, the SCAD Challenge seeks the next generation of talented artists and designers. High school seniors and juniors compete to showcase their work at SCAD signature events, and may become eligible for scholarships to SCAD, the most comprehensive art and design university in the world.
Students who had submitted an entry for the SCAD Challenge had the opportunity for their short film to be featured at the 2010 Savannah Film Festival.
Sherwin's video, titled "Burdens," has already been selected as the First Place Platinum winner in the junior film category, which has earned him a full SCAD Summer Seminars scholarship, including accommodations, airfare to Savannah or Atlanta for SCAD Summer Seminar, and one copy of Apple's Final Cut Pro software.
One Viewers' Choice winner, based on the results of the online voting, will be given a gift certificate to Apple.
The Savannah Film Festival, hosted by SCAD, annually presents a full range of cinematic creativity from both award-winning professionals and emerging student filmmakers.
