Folk of ‘Noke: Zachary Thornhill

Written by Juniper Rogers

Zachary Thornhill is a senior from Daleville, Virginia who double-majors in creative writing and screen studies. This will be Zach’s second year participating in the Tarantino Film Festival, held every. “The Tarantino Festival allows you the creative
freedom to work on projects you love and are proud of while also getting hands-on experience working with other students within the program. It’s a lot of fun.”

I remember attending the Basically Tarantino Film Festival last spring and everyone’s production was top-notch! Zach’s “The Black Faerie” won the award for the most creative use of a required line for the 2023 showing of the Tarantino film Festival. He told me that “One of my favorite memories during my time here has been working with my fellow directors in Olin to edit our films before they were shown in the Grandin Theater.”

If you could suspend your disbelief, Zach does much more than direct and produce films. “Whenever I’m bored I love to delve into the socio-political impacts that society has on literature, film, and video games. I also spend a fair amount of time studying
the impact of world religion.” Once again, we finish with Zach’s dedication to the wonderful people who have aided
him in his college career.

“I want to thank my parents, brother, best friend Sydney
Myers, Dr. Milbrodtm, Dr. Wendy Larson-Harris, Dr. Marwood Larson-Harris, Dr. Laura Garrison, Dr. Hill (god rest her soul), Joe Boucher, and all of my friends who have been there for me.”
