Share Article

This drama is the first original NESCom motion picture production that is not based on a story by a prominent author. Husson University's New England School of Communications students were responsible for all of the technical aspects of the production including the producing, directing, lighting, and sound.

The New England School of Communications (NESCom) at Husson University offers Bachelor of Science degrees in communications technology, mass communications and entertainment production.

An advance screening of "The Endless Ends," an original drama produced by Husson University's New England School of Communications, will take place on May 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Gracie Theatre.

The outstanding creativity and production values inherent in these student projects are a testament to the quality of media education available to aspiring film and television professionals through the New England School of Communications.

The Gracie Theatre at Husson University will host an advance screening of “The Endless Ends,” a 28-minute, original, student-produced motion picture on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. A coffee and desserts reception will immediately precede the screening starting at 7 p.m. Those attending the reception and the screening of “The Endless Ends” are encouraged to add glamour and excitement to this event by dressing in a semi-formalwear.

Unlike previous year-end NESCom presentations that have been based on the works of noted authors J.K. Rowling and Stephen King, “The Endless Ends” is an original screenplay written by Kris Bridges, a member of the faculty at Husson University’s New England School of Communications.

“This video presentation effective captures three important themes,” said Bridges. “First, we are all running out of time to accomplish what we want. Second, every decision should count. Every wrong decision has the potential to cause all-consuming regret for each of us. Finally, the screenplay tries to convey the importance of family peace and that this peace cannot be achieved without forgiveness.”

Filmed entirely in Maine, this dramatic presentation is about a recovering alcoholic in a substance abuse program who wants to make amends with his family before the world ends. Over the course of the story, the audience will be taken on an emotional journey that addresses youthful rebellion, midlife regret, and impending death. The film stars Jordan LeCours, Julie Lisnet, Jake Tremblay, and Steve Estey.

“I’m very proud of these presentations. Our students were responsible for everything necessary to complete these films,” said Thom Johnston, dean of the New England School of Communications at Husson University. “The outstanding creativity and production values inherent in these student projects are a testament to the quality of media education available to aspiring film and television professionals through the New England School of Communications. This will be a night of memorable entertainment!”

In addition, the audience will get a sneak preview of the new original NESCom comedy, “Partners in Crime.”

Those that attend should be aware that “The Endless Ends” contains brief instances of strong language and drug usage as part of the content. A question and answer session will be held after each screening. The directors and producers will be available during these sessions to answer questions about the filmmaking process.

This is not the first time NESCom has shared an outstanding student production with the public. In 2011-2012, the students of NESCom completed an adaption of Stephen King’s “The Last Rung on the Ladder,” which went on to win “Best Film in Maine” at the Lewiston Auburn Film Festival.

The short-film adaptation of “The Tale of the Three Brothers” was filmed in various Maine locations during the Fall 2013 semester with post-production and editing completed in Spring 2014.

The screenings are free and open to the public. The Gracie will be observing festival seating for these presentations. Those who arrive first, get to choose their seats first.
