Arts students from University of California, Irvine came together to put their spin on La La Land's "Another Day of Sun!" 80+ students and mentors were involved in the film project that included newly recorded instrumentals, vocals, lyrics, along with new choreography.  The film was produced by the Film-Arts-Drama-Alliance (FADA) at UCI specifically for the 18th annual Zotfest film festival at UCI.  The team wanted to create a "Soft Opening" film that would unite the students together for one large project. With the teamwork from Paper Sketch Media, FADA, and UCI Illuminations, they were able to pull resources together to bring the project "Zot Zot Land" to life! Filmmakers, Designers, Singers, Dancers, Actors, Musicians, Sound Specialists, and much more talented people worked hard for two months on the project with only two days of shooting. The cast and crew consisted of people of all different experience levels teaching each other while making the film happen. The film is a representation of students collaborating to create something beyond their limits while doing something they love. More on FADA, visit www.fadauci.com.
