LFHS Senior to Showcase Film at Festival

By Jessica Martin
September 22, 2005

Be sure to check out the short film, Only Love, by our very own Albert Kuhne this weekend at Birmingham's Sidewalk Movie Picture Festival. It will be held this weekend, September 23-25, in the Downtown Theatre District with Albert’s film scheduled for Saturday at 7:30 p.m. during the “Teen Screen” in Rushton Theatre, next door to the Alabama Theatre. The film features the band Nada Surf and their song Inside of Love. Albert is one of 15 teenagers from across the nation showcasing their film in this festival. Since its debut in 1999, filmmakers from across the country and around the world have come to Birmingham to screen their work at Sidewalk and have been thrilled to discover fresh, enthusiastic crowds eager to devour new independent cinema. The Ultimate Film Festival Survival Guide calls it "One of the Top 10 Film Festival Vacations."

In an interview with locustforkhornets.com, Albert said when he found out his film had been chosen for the festival, he jumped up and down and did flips in his yard. He is very ecstatic that he will have the opportunity to have his film shown to a large audience. Only Love is a short animated LEGO film about a man that walks through the door to his future, his life, and his love.

Albert was inspired to make this film when he found out his dad’s camera had a frame-by-frame movie setting. It was his first frame-by-frame work and he said he really just made the storyline up as he went along. He made the film using a consumer digital video camera, a Sony DCR-TRV38, and some LEGO bricks. It required no editing and no programs were used. It was just one flow of artistic energy that lasted twelve hours total over a span of four days. He said that his brother, Austin, helped him with some of the ideas in the film as well.

Albert also said that he definitely would like to pursue a career in filmmaking and would like to go to a filmmaking school in California. He said that he hopes the film will get some publicity to carry him farther in his career, but if not he will continue to make films.
