Evan Trout, 2010 Heartland High School Film Competition Finalist
Evan Trout, one of the 2010 Heartland High School Film Competition winners with his film Lady and the Champ, is graduating this year and heading to the International Academy of Film and Television in the Philippines.
Trout was awarded the IAFT-J. Everett Light Career Center Filmmaking Scholarship this spring. Kacy Andrews, the chief executive officer at IAFT, alum of the J. Everett Light Career Center offered this incredible opportunity for a scholarship to Trout’s Animation and Film Production class at the career center. This is the second year for the scholarship.
Trout will be abroad for twelve months in Mactan, Cebu, Philippines studying the Diploma Program in Filmmaking. There is a film studio located next to the school called Bigfoot Entertainment where students can collaborate with the studio on some projects. There are four films produced by each student and a final thesis film produced at the end of the year.
We at Heartland are ecstatic for Evan and this amazing opportunity. We will be paying close attention to Evan’s filmmaking career over the next year!

Haven’t you heard? Heartland has teamed up with Prodigy Camp to offer one student a scholarship to the 2011 summer session July 26-August 1.
We have cash prizes, festival screening opportunities and the coolest scholarship possibility imaginable. All you have to do is submit your High School Film Competition film by April 15, 2011.
About Prodigy Camp
This film camp is a place for the world’s top promising teen filmmakers to develop every aspect of their craft. In one intensive week, they will be taught the secrets to make a great film: screenwriting, directing and cinematography, and they will apply that knowledge, shooting and editing their own scene.
Students stay at the film camp supervised, and nothing but top flight award-winning filmmakers, including Oscar and Emmy winners, teach there. Students work on films most of the day, campfires and storytelling with filmmakers at night.
Every summer our film camp accepts 20 students, ages 12 to 18. Camp is held at a private retreat in the great Pacific Northwest for six days.
Submit your short film, 10 minutes or less, with the theme courage to the Heartland High School Film Competition by May 1, 2011 and be considered for this amazing opportunity. It’s too good to pass up! We can’t wait to see what amazing stories you have to tell.
