J’adoube – Created by 7 high school students in the Watkins Pre-College Program, J’adoube is
one of seven films selected for the Young Filmmakers Shorts category. During the 3-week Pre-
College program, these students conceived, wrote, cast (using professional actors), scouted
locations, filmed, directed and produced this 16-minute psychological thriller under the instruction
of Adjunct instructor Sam Dalton. Know a teen who would like to make films? Click here to learn
