Student Film Critiques with Brent McCorkle

Brent McCorkle is an award-winning screenwriter, filmmaker and musician, best known for his work on the films Unconditional, Woodlawn and the just-released I Can Only Imagine. Earlier this month, Brent touched down in Abilene and set up shop in the Learning Studio for two days of film editing critiques with ACU students participating in this year’s FilmFest competition.

During the sessions, Brent looked at late-stage edits of each film, giving each team notes on pacing and construction. The face-to-face meetings helped student filmmakers plan a roadmap for success and get a taste of the kind of critical review they’ll face when Brent returns as a FilmFest judge for the April 6 black-tie gala at the Historic Paramount Theatre.
