WARRENSBURG — The Show-Me Justice International Film Festival already is receiving entries, according to Mark von Schlemmer, festival director and a University of Central Missouri Department of Communications faculty member.

“We got the registration opened two weeks ago and immediately we started getting films in,” he said.

More films are being produced, including a 10-minute short being made by 22-year-old David Skaggs, of Oakville, a University of Central Missouri student.

Skaggs, crew members and actors appeared about 9 p.m. June 19 at the Stone House East Pine Pub in Warrensburg to work on “the bar scene.”

With Tim Lowndes, 22, Shawnee, Kan., seated next to Nicole Santorella, 23, Kansas City, pub co-owner Debbie Rosebush, 52, stepped between the two while Skaggs worked to frame the shot before filming.

Skaggs declined to say anything about the film, other than the content is “supernatural” and almost everyone involved is a UCM student.

Skaggs competed earlier this month in a five-minute short-film competition in Kansas City. A piece he wrote, directed and edited took second place.
