BCTC Student Works on Busey Film about Bourbon Industry
Kentucky Ag Connection - 01/02/2018

Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) student Mark Ebens recently worked as a production assistant (PA) for a new movie called "Bluegrass Spirits" based on the bourbon industry here in Kentucky.

The movie will feature film star Gary Busey's son, Jake Busey. Jake Busey visited different distilleries around the state to prepare for the role. Wilmore, Ky., native Jonny Walls is the director of the movie, which was shot at the Hartfield & Co. craft distillery in Paris, Ky.

Ebens' responsibilities with the film included working as a PA for the camera team and the art department. His main job was to prepare the slate for each of the slots. The slate's purpose is the documentation it provides on what scene is being filmed, when it was filmed, what take it was, which film reel it was, etc. On top of the slate is the "clapper" which is an audio marker.

BCTC's Filmmaking Certificate Program offers students an opportunity to work with industry professionals in a master class setting. Graduates of the program have been placed in active productions all over Kentucky.
