Five Hesston High students, Jon Geidel, Alex Meier, Malachi Wallace, Micha Wallace, and Scott Yutzy, undertook the making of a feature-length film, Finn & Co.
The film will run its final screening at Mojo’s Coffee in Newton on July 13.
“Budget money, we would estimate about 10 bucks. We estimated over 2,000 man-hours just as the five-man crew,” said Yutzy.
The project started as a basic screenplay.
“It was a really simple idea when we started writing it. We knew we couldn’t do anything outlandish. We had no budget, little experience and no time. We wanted to make something simple. It is a relatable story about guys that we can relate to and have fun. It’s winter and they want to build a time machine and go to summer,” said Yutzy
