Killing Saul, a comedy co-directed and produced by Jim Powers 'l0 and Andrew
Spahr '09, debuted at the New York International Independent Film Festival October 27, 2009.
In addition to Powers and Spahr, St. Lawrence actors in the film are Caroline Rosato '09, McLean Beyor '10, Mike Barry 'l1, Ryan Cooney '09, Charlie Haydock '09 and Jon Thomas '10; music for the film is by Hakiem Greenhut '09.
Powers, a performance and communication arts major with a minor in film studies, is from Averill Park, NY. He produced the film Tommy Time in 2008 at St. Lawrence and is at work on a new film, Baker's Dozen, with a story based on a Saints football team in the l950's.
Powers says, "It will be filmed on campus and around Canton, using an all-student and alumni cast," and he adds that he would like to hear from graduates interested in acting or other involvement in the project. With his brother, Steve Powers, Jim Powers has formed Westfield Films. Jim is looking for St. Lawrence alumni who would be interested in acting or providing script material for the film.
