Our featured film this week is an 'oldie but goldie' by Alfred Hitchcock.The 39 Steps is a perfect example of 'Hithcockian' film, exploring the journey of trust and betrayal. Here's how the story goes: Richard Hannay is a visitor in London who commits himself to help a counterespionage agent. After a show at the music hall, he takes her back to his apartment and she is murdered later that evening. Fearing to be pinned for her murder, Hannay flees.

Think big, dream big and act big! A motto our featured filmmaker this week strives to live by. Anderson West is an award winning filmmaker who studied Media Production at Staffordshire University and graduated with first-class honors. He is currently working as a production manager in a corporate film production, but one day hopes to 'dream' for a living. You can check out one of his short, First Day, a funny short about a young boy who gets in trouble and ends up in detention.
