Grace Nix ’15, independent of Kerry Nix ’15 who is not a film major like her sister, made a short film called “Margarine Call – the Serious Short Film,” which I gather is about (*spoiler alert*?) an ordinary girl living her very ordinary life except for the fact that she carries around a tub of margarine everywhere she goes. Watch it yourself for the more serious reveals. From Grace Nix:
I made this film because of what Jason George Costanza Alexander said. He said, “There’s no reason you can’t be working every day.” And he was right–there’s no reason you can’t be margarine every day. I wrote the screenplay last summer and worked with Elizabeth Litvitskiy(’15) in the weeks after spring break to pull it all together. The lovely Mitchell Stone(’16) and Noah Masur(’15) worked long hours for absolutely no money so we could finish this right. We finished up with filming during senior week… and here it is.Danielle Pruitt(’15), Emma Lautz(’15), and Kerry Nix(’15) worked crew. Emma Lautz and Ben Zucker also played relatively small, but strong, acting roles. This could not have been accomplished without the Save-A-Lot in Meriden, Connecticut. And Bruce Springsteen.
