Ever wanted to direct your own movie?  Well, Campus MovieFest gave USC students that chance last week.

Campus MovieFest provided students with cameras and editing equipment, and gave students a week to write, shoot and edit their own movies.

"I'm a media arts student and this seems to be a really good opportunity for students to show what we're really made of and what we're capable of" USC Student Ashton Greene said.

Thirty-Eight movies were submitted, and the best 16 were shown at the Campus MovieFest finale last Friday.  The best comedy, drama, and overall picture got prizes and the winners get the chance to go to Hollywood for the Campus MovieFest Grand Finale in July.

Judges will watch the best movies from each campus after all of the Campus MovieFests have been completed in April to determine which movies will make it to Hollywood.

The grand prize winners will receive the opportunity to pitch their movie ideas to film studios in Los Angeles.

Campus MovieFest will hold MovieFests all over the country. For a list of upcoming campuses please visit their web site.
