FPD Alum Tim Hall (’07) is in the process of making his second film. Named “Born River Bye,” it is a story about “personal growth” as two main characters return home over a long weekend. Hall began his love for film while a student at FPD. FPD Theatre Director, Dr. Andrew Strickland said that Hall would converse about classic movies “that none of his classmates had ever seen” and was making movies unlike what most young people would be producing.

“They weren’t parodies; they weren’t silly comedies,” Strickland said. “They were very deep, story-driven pieces.”

Because of that, Strickland isn’t surprised that Hall has found his way into the movie business. “It would be more of a shock to me if he hadn’t made film his life,” he said.
