UM students make independent film

Independently written and produced by University of Miami students, Tiger Radio is a comedy about Mike, a college student aspiring to make it big as a radio personality but lacking the motivation.

Through a comedic chain of events, Mike’s outrageous roommates manage to give Mike the opportunity he needs to put his dreams in motion.

Quantum, the university’s film organization, has provided $500 for materials to finish the film after the producers of the film pitched multiple proposals to the organization.

Mike Menendez, writer and actor; Ryan Ondriezek, executive producer and co-director; Andrew Murphy, line producer; and Anthony Behn, co-director and director of photography have been working on the film and shot the final sequences this past weekend.

The film is scheduled to air at the Cosford Cinema on Nov. 24.

Dance Marathon, a student-organized philanthropy committed to raising money and awareness for the kids and families of Miami Children’s Hospital, is teaming with California Pizza Kitchen to raise money.

This Tuesday, 20 percent of the proceeds from the restaurant will go to Miami Children’s Hospital when students bring the flier advertising the event located around campus.

California Pizza Kitchen is at 300 Miracle Mile.
