You've heard it before. A film competition with a predefined theme, tight time schedule and group of dedicated, sleep-deprived Burlington College students struggling through for a big win. But we're not talking about the Sleepless in Lake Placid film competition held a few months ago, where BC students took away the Audience Choice Award.

I'm having a hard time putting the news about Robin Williams in perspective. I had a tape of Robin William's stand up when I was young. I wore it out. His comedic roles in his early films never seemed to capture his comic energy, but I saw every film, hoping that someone would create a vehicle to bring his greatness to the big screen.

Burlington College could not stop buzzing after undergraduate, DeWolfe Morrow’s recent honor given at the 2013 Creative Minds in Cannes Film Program. From homeless men on the sidewalk, to a night out similar to the 2009 film,The Hangover, Morrow captivated audiences across the globe with his five-minute film titled, “One Day,” focusing on the significance of equality among humans.
Morrow and his student colleague, Joseph Mulherin took flight to Cannes, France with the mindset of winning the competition within the program; they wanted to create a film that could make a difference. When they arrived, their determination increased after on-looking the other 17 teams competing to win the same title. After evaluating the requirements, Morrow went to work, pen in hand, as the screenplay for the short film poured onto paper.
The team of five had one week to complete a five-minute film with no copyright infringements. Some teams chose to focus on diversity and other humanitarian issues, while Morrow chose to capture the essence of equality. “One Day” was born from this idea, with the notion that every man is similar once stripped away of all materialistic possessions. The camaraderie found between the two men in the film radiated out of the screen as “One Day” five-minute film was released to audience members in Cannes.
