The UMHB Film Program involves students in authentic film production processes so that they are prepared to work on film sets and on film productions in real-world work. This script-to-screen process begins in the UMHB screenwriting course in which each student develops an original short screenplay. Produced Cru Films are submitted to film competitions and festivals. DVD copies of Cru Films are housed in the Townsend Library at UMHB.
The Walk is about a young woman, Kenzie, who has been greatly affected by the absence of her father due to divorce when she was six years old. Kenzie is approaching her marriage to Mark. As the days near the wedding, her dreams of her father’s heartbreaking absences during her childhood haunt her and fear that Mark will end up like her father permeates through her entire body. The day of the wedding Kenzie’s father calls to inform her that he will not be able to walk her down the aisle. But this is also the day that she realizes that her father’s absence can be filled by God and His spirit through her friends, her mother, and her future husband.
