Ducking the Hollywood studio system entirely, a group of ambitious OSU students and other Columbus folks have written, shot, and produced a home-rolled feature-length film, Detachment. The film is what it is, and I’m not going to offer up a review, but I’m more interested in the process that gave birth to it. In many ways, I liked the short “making of” documentary more than the film itself, because it showed how much fun the whole shindig must have been. Local indie theater Studio 35 produced it, the community seemed behind it, and one of the long-range goals of the project was to revive OSU’s film major. As a new media proponent, I have to say that this is a positive move, especially if the influence ends up extending into the university at large.
