SpyHop PitchNic World Premiere 

Thursday Nov. 11 @ Rose Wagner Center

Nearly a year ago, a dozen local youth signed on for an intensive, mentored course in how to make a real movie. This week, you get a chance to see the fruits of their labors.

The SpyHop PitchNic Class of 2010 brings four new short films—two documentaries and two fiction features—in the program’s eighth annual showcase of Utah’s auteurs of tomorrow. Rock Is in the Air presents the mockumentary adventures of an “air band” torn apart over the possibility of picking up real instruments. Streeters explores the reality of homeless youth in Salt Lake City, while The Silhouettes looks at local performance poets using their art as creative therapy. And Rx tells the story of a hypochondriac whose encounter with a young woman changes his life.

You could wait for Sundance to see short films that could portend future greatness. Or, you could see what these three-person creative teams have wrought right in your own back yard.

SpyHop PitchNic World Premiere @ Rose Wagner Center, 138 W. 300 South, 801-355-3787, Nov. 11, 7:30 p.m., $6.50. SpyHop.org
