SLCC FIlm Professor Tyler Smith and film students share the documentary films they made this semester, including:

Student Filmmakers: Toby Simmons, Sean Leonard, and Chris Ellis.

  • Diverted: Indigenous Stewardship and Saving The Great Salt Lake. The Great Salt Lake is a natural wonder that is disappearing before our very eyes. With efforts for indigenous stewardship to nonprofit preservation, we explore the profound effects of the Great Salt Lake and what it means if it fades away forever. Student Filmmakers: Kolby Butts, Valene Peratrovich, and McCaulee Blackburn.
