Lanesboro Arts will host two screenings of the film “RISE OF THE SEA URCHINS” at the St. Mane Theatre on Thursday and Friday, August 6 and 7, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. The film was written by Les Nelson of Winona, Minn. and Daniel Ostrem of Peterson, Minn. It was produced by Nelson and Mark Newcom of Waldorf College in Forest City, Iowa, and directed by Waldorf graduates Carlos Ruiz and Phillip Koolhoven. The zany family-friendly movie follows Ted Biddles, the insecure new kid, his off balance coach Max Dungal and the unimpressive Sunnyville Sea Urchins in their quest for water polo glory. The 113 page script of 65 scenes was shot at 39 locations in just 24 days during the college’s 2014 May term. There were 41 actors with speaking parts and over 70 extras, all volunteers from the region, including high school students as well as college students and other adults who took time to work on the movie in addition to their regular jobs and responsibilities. An entire team of plumbers from Cresco, Iowa, became the Water Buffaloes, a rival water polo team. “If it hadn’t been for the work ethic of the crew and actors, the vision of Waldorf College to train top quality film professionals and the commitment of all the others who supported us in many ways, we couldn’t have shot a full length feature film, and definitely not in 24 days,” says Nelson.
