9x9’s New Film Double Blind to Premiere at Hansen

November 8, 2007

BLOOMINGTON, Ill.— 9x9, Illinois Wesleyan’s film organization, will premiere their new film Double Blind on Tuesday Nov. 13 at 9 p.m. at the Hansen Student Center (300 E. Beecher St., Bloomington).

This event is free and open to the public.

9x9’s first production of the year is based around the genre of film noir. A private investigator follows the trail of clues to find out who killed his partner and best friend, and is shocked to realize where he ends up. The film stars Chris Davis, a senior economics and psychology major, Emily Chicoine, a senior marketing and music major, and Liam Conlon, a freshman English-writing major.

Double Blind falls in step with 9x9’s code of practice by being completely student made and produced. The entire club is involved in creation of the storyline. During production and post-production, members make up the body of the crew, working with lighting, sound equipment, props and costumes, editing and direction.

9x9 is entering its 6th year as an established organization at Illinois Wesleyan, with Assistant Dean of Students Kevin Clark acting as sponsor. This will be the fourth film made by the filmmaking group and is said by members to be their most ambitious, with not only a fully-developed plot and cast of characters, but also a strong emphasis on cinematography.
