If you are going to say something mean, just stay silent.
SILENT, a film by Lindsey Hunter
Lindsey Hunter is a 15-year-old freshman at Folsom High School in Folsom, CA. “Silent” is her first short film. She created it for a Northern CA Media Educator’s Film Contest for which she received first place in the live action short film division. Lindsey wanted to create a film titled “Silent” that was a silent film about a girl living in a silent world and wanted to convey the message, “If you are going to say something mean, remain silent.” Lindsey has grown up around disabled people since her father is blind. In fact, when she first showed “Silent” to her father, Lindsey had to describe each scene to him. The story brought her dad to tears. Lindsey has a genuine heart for those with disabilities. Lindsey is passionate about her interest in creating projects on film. She got her start by creating videos of her sister on her iTouch. Lindsey also loves to perform with El Dorado Musical Theater where she met the girls who starred in “Silent” The redeemed mean girl is played by Julianne Yonano and the deaf girl is played by Jocelyn Haney. Lindsey hopes to get a scholarship to the USC Film School so she can pursue a career in filmmaking.
