Nerds are tougher than they may seem in River Dell duo Korey Loehr and Troy Hughes production "Tough Nerds" which will be aired at 12pm this afternoon during MSG Varsity's second installment of “Student Director’s Cut” on Channel 14.
“Student Director’s Cut”, a new series devoted exclusively to original, student-produced films, invites each student-director to host and introduce his or her respective film.
“One of the core missions of MSG Varsity is providing a platform to celebrate the wide variety of talent and creativity within our area high schools,” said Michael Lardner, Senior Vice President & Executive Producer, MSG Varsity. “We are thrilled that ‘Student Director’s Cut’ will provide so many talented young storytellers with an outlet to showcase their work to a wide audience, as well as give their insight into the creative process.”
