Wayne State College film students have two films out of 18 chosen for the BisonBison undergraduate film competition – “The Offer” written by junior Shelby Hagerdon and “Love Sick” written by junior Andrew Suiter. The competition will be in Ponca City, Oklahoma Apr. 3 and 4.

The competition is limited to six states: Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri and Arkansas. It is considered one of the top student festivals with strong connections to several graduate programs.

Students involved in the production of “Love Sick” were Suiter – writer, sophomore Mark Albers – director, and Kate Lundahl – producer.

“I am extremely happy to have something that I wrote accepted into the BisonBison Film Festival,” Suiter said.

“I am also proud of the hard work of Kate Lundahl, Mark Albers and the rest of the crew involved for putting my words on screen.”

Suiter said he is thankful for the opportunity, and he can’t wait to see the other great films that were accepted.

Students involved with the production of “The Offer” were sophomore Ally Boyd – director and junior Shelby Hagerdon – writer and producer.

The students radiate happiness and positive work ethic as they wait to go to the competition.
