“U.P.,” an original work written by Assistant Professor Mark Colson and Peter Mervis, directed by Colson, which tells the story of a disillusioned man who sets out on a road trip searching for answers and ultimately finds himself in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The video design portrayed the character’s 3,000 mile road trip and his inner turmoil. His distance from other characters was represented at times when he became trapped in the video and would peer out at the world. Bluescreen footage shot at Michigan Motion Picture Studio in Pontiac, Michigan. Performed at the RCAH Theatre in February 2013.
