admin's picture

The Northeast Texas Community College Honors Program recently wrapped up filming for its annual feature-length movie. This year’s Honors Northeast film, Mary Kay, tells the story of the legendary Texas cosmetics mogul who founded an empire. Honors students researched the topic, wrote the script, costumed, acted in, directed, filmed and are handling production of the movie. Brenda Godoy directed the 61-scene film, which was shot largely in Fort Worth.

“I am continually amazed at the creativity and ingenuity our students display when putting these films together. It requires a phenomenal amount of coordination to pull off something of this magnitude and they always manage to impress me,” Dr. Andrew Yox, Honors Director, said.

The film stars sophomore Presidential Scholar, Cassidy Watkins, who plays the lead role of Mary Kay. Other cast and crew members include: Matthew Chambers, Karson Nelson, Jordan Whelchel, Sebastian Martinez, Rhylie Anderson, Leivy Zuniga, Adriana Rodriguez, Rachel Jordan, Madison Blood, Yaritza Romero, and Alicia Cantrell. Heath Dyal, William Fox, Yami Zuniga, Hannah Dickson, Jazmin Garcia, Karina Pena, and Laura Ross served on two research teamtrips to Dallas and Denton. Warren Wu will be the film’s producer.

“NTCC sophomore scholars were a key part of this year’s film effort,” Yox said. “They not only applied their experience from last year’s effort, they asked me if they could help mentor the freshmen to assume their roles in the future!”

The film is currently under production and Honors Northeast plans to premiere the film in February. To view past film projects, visitwww.ntcc.edu/honors.
