LHS alumnus recognized for film projects.

Grown Locally is presented by House of Flavors Restaurant of Ludington and features locally owned businesses and locally produced products.

LUDINGTON — Dawson Segraves, a 2020 graduate of Ludington High School, was recently honored for his film production of “Julie: A Summer Love Story”, which he and several classmates produced while attending LHS. A plaque commemorating the short film is on display at L.F. Peterson Auditorium.

“Writing, producing and directing a film is no small task, especially for high school students,” LHS Principal Dan Mesyer said. “We wanted to commemorate the film by giving it a permanent at the auditorium. We are hopeful that all the kids who worked on that film find success in whatever paths they have chosen to follow as they’ve entered into adulthood.”

“Julie: A Summer Love Story” is a 48-minute “summer of love” film set in 1974. It was produced by Segraves’ production company, K5 Pictures.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the school,” Segraves said. “‘Julie’ and our next film, ‘Farewell My Darling’ were both collaborative efforts that required an entire team of people to create.”

Segraves recently attended Grand Valley State University where he took film classes. He said he’s not quite sure yet what his next step in his post high school graduation will be.

A free screening of “Farewell My Darling” will take place on Saturday, July 16 at 7 p.m. at Ludington Area Center for the Arts, 107 S. Harrison St.
