Hollywood coming to Greenwood

Lander Short Film Competition features lines from ‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ writers 

 Hollywood coming to Greenwood

Lander University alumnus Sam Thomas of Abbeville won top honors in the open division of Lander’s Short Film Competition last year with a line written for him by Hollywood writer/producer Kevin Biegel, whose credits include “Cougar Town,” “Scrubs,” and “Enlisted.” Thomas edged out the competition with his creative use of the line – “That’s because my Dad is Burt Reynolds” – and took home his fifth film festival win.

This year he’s aiming for win number six, but competition will be fierce.

Eight writers from “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” put their talents to work creating lines to be used in the 2015 Short Film Competition, part of the university’s Sixth Annual Film Festival. Twenty filmmakers and their crews are busy writing, shooting and editing their submissions.
