Tri-C Film Student Takes Second in Online Festival
Marissa Roesch made ‘My Body is My Home’ as her final project in a short film class
Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) film student Marissa Roesch made an award-winning directorial debut at The Exposure Film Fest.
Her five-minute film, “My Body is My Home,” took second place in the inaugural online film festival. Roesch wrote and directed the film in the fall as her final project in a class exploring the short film genre and techniques.
“My Body is My Home” offers an emotional glimpse into a transgender journey. The story featuring two friends unfolds in layers of love, compassion, empathy and discovery. Roesch said a friend’s experience inspired her to write the film.
“I was really looking to do something meaningful with my project,” said the 26-year-old, who shot the film in a single day with two actors and a crew member. “I’m very proud of what we were able to do.”
Roesch expects to graduate from Tri-C this summer with an Associate of Applied Business degree in film and media arts. The Parma resident hopes to continue making films while building a career in commercial video production.
She currently serves in the Ohio Army National Guard with the 838th Military Police Company.
