My name is Evan Stephens and I am a Media Production major graduating Spring 2023. I make documentaries focusing on the niche, unusual, and untold stories we have all around us and ones I believe they should be told. From country bars turned into haunted houses to recovering heroin addicts, the stories speak for themselves, it is just my job to give them the proper outlet. I have been working with cameras since I was a little kid starting with stop motion videos on an iPod touch and just growing from there into the filmmaker I have become today.
The Melting Pint
The Melting Pint is a short documentary following a group of chaotic friends, Hunter, Alex, Jessie, Zach, Evan, Anna, Ilias, Brandon, Victoria, Hogan, and Owen, trying to get to the bottom of a mystery that rocked the house they all live in. A pint of ice cream was left in the microwave to the point completely melted. The story follows themes of lactose intolerance, the paranormal, drug use, and accusation to get to the bottom of something to this day we don’t know the true answer. Everyone has an alibi, a story, and an interrogation to determine the culprit. During the interviews, everyone was present, showing the group dynamic and how their personalities and alibis contradict each other. The interrogative light forces everyone to tell their best stories of what they recount through the night. Who do you think did it?
