In a recent interview with Bellevue Reporter, local resident Ben Kadie speaks about his experiences as a prominent youth filmmaker over the years and divulges on his creative process. Currently a sophomore at Interlake High School, Ben has been making movies since third grade and has a knack for incorporating green screen and other special effects into his films. Seattle based youth film festival NFFTY has featured Ben’s uber-creative films in every one of their festivals the past four years. His most recent filmic acomplishment, receiving a Scholastic Art & Writing Award from the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers, can be viewed at Seattle Art Museum. There, his three-minute film noir, “Sparks in the Night” is being shown with the traveling exhibit ART.WRITE.NOW, which showcases select winners of the national writing award. The event is free and open to the public at SAM from now until April 24 during regular museum hours. Be sure to catch Ben’s latest film and other youth made movies at this year’s NFFTY from April 28 – May 1. You may stumble upon the next Spielberg, Kubrick, Lynch or Shelton! Read the full interview with Mr. Kadie at the link above and learn more about the “15-year-old Oscar winner in training.”
