Twelve FHS students rehearsed individually with director Kelly Komlen over Zoom for several weeks and one by one video-recorded their parts on the high school stage on a recent Sunday.
“It’s a lot more work that you’d expect when you first jump in,” Schurg said. “We start rehearsing in January and the auditions are in December. So as soon as we come back from winter break we get right to it.”
Ferndale put its best face forward the first weekend in September 2009, with the first ever Ferndale Film Festival. The event, which grew out of the Detroit Film Club and their meetings at Dino’s Lounge 22740 Woodward, featured over 30 films at a dozen locations through the city, along with workshops and discussion groups.
