Contact: Sharon Ashton, director of Media Relations and Events at (904)620-2115
University of North Florida alum Frank Goodin will debut his first full-length feature film “Love Trap” at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, February 14 in the Lazzara Performance Hall of the UNF Fine Arts Center.
The movie is about a law school student who finds out what happens when temptation enters a relationship. Parts of “Love Trap” were filmed on the UNF campus, using UNF students as extras. Frank Goodin, who received his bachelor’s degree in Communications from UNF in 1994, wrote the screenplay, directed and produced the film. He also has a cameo appearance in “Love Trap.” The movie is not yet rated.
After the movie is shown at UNF, Goodin will ask for donations to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Fund and his company, Love Trap Productions, LLC will match the donations up to $500.00. Goodin was a recipient of the UNF Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Award when he attended the University of North Florida.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to premier my movie at the very place I got my start,” said Goodin. “I have high hopes for this film and I pleased that Jacksonville will get to view it first.”
Goodin’s previous works have received numerous industry awards and have been featured at the Downstream International Film Festival, the Kissimmee Film Festival, the Atlanta Urban Film Festival, and the Seattle Film Festival.
General admission tickets for the February 14 world premier at UNF are $10 and proceeds go toward promoting the movie across the United States. Tickets can be obtained by contacting John Yancey in the Office of Admissions at (904) 620-1610 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
