In May, the Saratoga campus and several Harker students made guest appearances in “Mary’s Song,” a short film produced by a group of students from Santa Clara University. The film relates the story of a girl learning to live with her autistic sister while also struggling with the pressures of teen life.
Scenes were shot in places such as the main classroom building, Manzanita Hall and outside the front entrance of Dobbins Hall. Harker students appeared as extras in classroom scenes, and graphic design teacher J Gaston even had a speaking part as an English teacher.
“Mary’s Song” was shown at the SCU Genesis Student Film Festival on June 9, alongside several other student-made short films and documentaries.
The entire 14-minute film can be viewed via YouTube.
