Please join us on Friday, February 22 at 7:30 p.m. in Folino Theater for a screening of The Red Envelope, a short film created by Dodge College students last summer on the Hengdian World Studios backlot in China.

Fifteen students from Dodge College, including one from Chapman Singapore, embarked on a two-week trip to Hengdian World Studios in Hengdian last summer. Students from multiple disciplines – including Film Production, Production Design, and Screen Acting – collaborated on a time-traveling love story written to utilize the resources of the backlot.

The Red Envelope is the result of this undertaking, and it is screening for our viewing enjoyment this Friday, February 22 at 7:30 p.m. in Folino Theater. As part of the program, we will also be screening a short documentary that chronicles the students’ unique experiences making the film.

In our In Production magazine, Associate Dean – and trip faculty advisor – Michael Kowalski recently said:

This is the largest studio backlot in the world so it is a great opportunity for our students to not only learn about Chinese culture but about China’s position as a dominant player in the industry over-all.

This screening is free and open to the public. Check out some photos from the set, and the post-production process:
