This fall, Derek Dubois will once again appear in print in the peer-reviewed film journal SHORT FILM STUDIES which is published by Intellect LTD. You can find more information on this wonderful journal at the following link:
Derek's essay, entitled "Cruel Summer: Decoding Subtext through Shot Design in The Beach" argues that filmmaker Dorthe Scheffmann's filmic style, specifically shot design via mise-en-scene and cinematography, adds additional layers of meaning to the story of two intimate friends in a startling dramatic conflict.
Watch for publication this fall. In the meantime, enjoy an excerpt from Sheffmann's short film which served as the basis for Dubois' analysis.

The class, featuring upper-level film undergraduates, screened three of Derek's films: Fallout (2012), Lucid (2013), and Sinners (2014) before venturing into a lively discussion on a range of topics from low-budget film-making to feminist film theory.
This was an exciting opportunity to highlight the works of this local filmmaker while also allowing for a sharing of advice on DIY methodologies.
