Class Acts - Kirlew and Turner Tackle the Arts
April 3, 2009
We know Jammie Kirlew is one of the most gifted athletes on the football field. We also know he has taken full advantage of every opportunity a great university like Indiana University offers. He has studied overseas and volunteered for Barack Obama's presidential campaign all while turning himself into one of the top defensive ends in the country.
Terrance Turner battled back from an ACL injury he suffered as a redshirt freshman to finish third on the team with 29 receptions and fourth on the club with 289 receiving yards in 2008.
However, the talented theatre and drama major from Auburn Hills, Mich., is making the most noise on stage. He currently is starring in `The America Play,' which is running until April 4 at the Wells-Metz Theatre on the Bloomington campus. To read more about the play, please visit http://www.indiana.edu/~thtr/productions/2008/lntdc/7america/index.html.
Now the two talents have connected off the field in a short film titled `Spring Break Up.' Kirlew wrote, produced and directed the short film that has been entered in `Campus MovieFest,' the world's largest national student film festival. It will premiere along with other short films next Thursday at the Buskirk-Chumley theatre in Bloomington. According to Kirlew, it is a romantic comedy, starring Turner. If the jury selects their movie, 'Spring Break Up' will advance to the national finals.
