The second film, “The Somnambulist,” stars Ben Norberg of Powell, and was written by Brian Kent of Powell. It’s the story of a struggling actor with a sleepwalking problem. Production was completed during the spring semester of 2010 and post-production completed this semester.
Audio production students of Robert Rumbolz, NWC assistant professor of music, recorded and edited dialogue as well as produced original music for both movies.
“Each year, these movies give Northwest students an opportunity to exercise their imaginations in creating original productions,” said Dennis Davis, NWC assistant professor of journalism/mass communication. “We invite the public to share in the world premiere to enjoy students’ work.”
