RYE, N.Y. -- Grant Tiedemann watched as the serial killer approached his sister Kelly - and he got it all on camera."I already got killed," said Tiedemann, 13. "He slit my throat."
Tiedemann and his sister, 14, are making a short horror film with several other youths participating in the Rye TV Summer Video Club at Rye High School.
The group has been working on their movie for two weeks and will wrap it up at the end of this week. In that short time they have learned the basics of capturing video and sound, written a script and cast themselves as the actors.
Grant Tiedemann enjoys holding the camera, while Kelly Tiedemann prefers to be in front of it.
"It's fun, I get to be with my friends," said Kelly. "And I get to be an actress."
But like most characters in the movie, she will come to an untimely demise, which means she will join the crew behind the camera."I think by the end of this we're going to have a very large crew," said their instructor Andrew Dapolite.When filming finishes the movie will be edited, then there will be a small screening at the Rye TV Studio before it is broadcast on their local channel. Would you like your children to participate in this workshop? Do you know any other aspiring young filmmakers in Rye and would like to share their work?
