The Western Carolina University School of Stage and Screen will co-host an entertainment technology conference and expo Friday, Oct. 14, with a focus on film and theater lighting techniques.
One of the first feature films for which Arledge Armenaki, associate professor of cinematography, served as director of photography will be re-released on BluRay and DVD formats on Tuesday, Aug. 30.
Arledge Armenaki, Western Carolina University associate professor of cinematography, is recipient of a Telly Award for his work as director of photography on “Wesley,” a historical movie about a co-founder of the Methodist church.
Marcia L. Lewis, executive director of Mountain Youth Resources, said the documentary Western Carolina University students created about Hawthorn Heights “captured the heart and soul of the program and how it affects children’s lives.”
Arledge Armenaki knew filming a movie about John Wesley, a founder of the Methodist movement, with an independent film’s budget would be a challenge, considering just some of the actual events of Wesley’s life: rescue from a house fire, a near-shipwreck, a star-crossed love affair and violent mobs.
