STUDENT HARKENS TO “SOUND OF DOGS” EN ROUTE TO FILM CAREER
Hendersonville Native Talks about Directing Technique on “MTSU on the Record”
(MURFREESBORO) – Warren Smythe, MTSU student and director, producer, editor and co-writer of the independent motion picture “Sound of Dogs,” will talk about his love of film at 8 a.m. this Sunday, Feb. 14, on “MTSU on the Record” with host Gina Logue on WMOT-FM (89.5 and wmot.org).
Smythe, an electronic media production major from Hendersonville, made “Sound of Dogs” in Hendersonville with an all-Hendersonville cast and a total expenditure of about $30. He describes it as a psychological thriller about Sutton Gundry, a high school student who learns about his forgotten past through a girl. The trailer can be viewed at www.soundofdogs.com.
“Sound of Dogs” premiered at the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville on Dec. 21. Smythe has submitted it to the Nashville Film Festival, which is slated for Apr. 15-22.
