A good deal of thought can go into one second of videotape, independent moviemakers said at Saturday night's debut Washington County U Create Film Festival. Stories simple and perplexing, light and dark, bloody and serene rolled at the festival, which was at Hagerstown Community College. Chris Long of Middletown, Md., made a short film called "Spring," about a man welcoming the warm weather by flying a kite. The most difficult camera shot was a snippet from the point of view of the kite, looking down on the man flying it. Long - who drives a bookmobile in Frederick County, Md. - said the best spot he could find was the observation tower at the Civil War battlefield in Gettysburg, Pa., but he wasn't allowed to stay there long.

bonnieb@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - When Bill Flohr and his wife, Twila, vacationed on Hilton Head Island, S.C., in 1977, he took along a kite that he had as a child. It flew very well on the beach, he purchased another one at a nearby kite shop, "and that led to many, many more over the years," Bill Flohr said. Now, Flohr shares his passion for his high-flying hobby at Renfrew Park's annual Spring Fun Fly. Participants can fly their kites in the meadow at Renfrew from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and receive kite-flying advice from Flohr.
