Mike and Brittney Buffo, founders of the HARA Motion Picture Conservatory (501c3 non-profit) and with the support of Nancy Buck Ransom Foundation, the Arts Council for Monterey County and the STAR Foundation of Monterey County, have successfully completed their 12th season serving youth through a dynamic after-school filmmaking program hosted at the Carmel Youth Center.

High school students from Everett Alvarez High School, Monterey High School, Pacific Grove High School, Millennium Charter High School, and Carmel High School enrolled in the HARA program and worked alongside film industry mentors to participate in a script-to-screen production. Together, they executed the production of a feature-film titled WAR OF THE LIMELIGHT featuring an ensemble cast of teens and local talent. This 90-minute feature was filmed in Carmel, Monterey, and Salinas over the course of 27 production days during the student’s 2016 summer and winter school breaks.

The film is a love story across cultures in the midst of a racist cyber bulling war between two rival high schools. Will it go too far or will the rival schools work together to save an innocent student from devastating consequences?

HARA focuses on kick-starting young careers. WAR OF THE LIMELIGHT was directed by recent Whittier College graduate and HARA alumni, Eric Hinwood. This is the third feature film he has directed since getting his start in 2010 with the HARA program. The curriculum is inventive, the opportunity rare, and the experience unforgettable for these young adults.

Tickets to the first public screening at the Golden Bough Playhouse are $20/adults and $5/students, seats are limited and will sell out. Go to www.hara.eventbrite.com to purchase advance tickets. Cameras will be rolling to capture audience reactions in the opening and final scenes, so we encourage patrons to attend who are willing to be photographed!
