A BETTA IS BORN
Prompted by their senior honors thesis project through Barrett, the Honors College at Arizona State University, Kaitlyn Baucke and June Hucko used this opportunity to tell the story of Betta. Incited by the desire to create a long narrative music video, the duo used all local, ASU affiliated musicians and artists to craft the musically driven short film.
The concept of the film was promoted by the question, "What defines us as human beings? Are we entirely composed of our memories and experiences, or our likes and desires?"
Co-writer and Producer of BETTA
"Telling this story was an absolute pleasure. I absolutely loved creating such a fun and quirky piece about a time we have all experienced- leaving a past behind in order to move on to new adventures. I'm so grateful for what Betta has brought me, and can't wait to see what the future holds."
Co-writer, Director, and Production Designer of BETTA
“I am extremely proud of Betta because it directly reflects my views, my work and my future. I feel honored that I was able to direct, design and help write such a wonderful piece! I am excited for what is to come for Betta and the next project it leads to!”
