Rad-X Pictures latest film, "What Happens in China" hit theaters and DVD Wednesday after being premiered at the Eagle Hill Cultural Center in Hardwick, Massachusetts. The event captured the attention of a local reporter, who decided to write an article in the Worcester Telegram reporting the story. The premiere was a private showing among members of the trip and close family members.
As of December, the film had been produced using more than 4,000 video and image clips, over 50 songs, and over 120 hours of work. Originally titled "Pictures of China" (early concept poster left), "What Happens in China" came about in April of 2011, halfway through Nickerson's trip to China. Upon his return to America at the end of the month, he set aside his work at the Nickersoft Corporation (http://www.nickersoft.webs.com/), and put his efforts into making the film. He would spend the next five months creating a two hour and twenty minute montage of footage and images from the trip.
Sean DuBois, a film instructor at Quabbin Regional High School, called the film "a great gift to anyone who was on the trip and a major selling point for those who are thinking about traveling to China." Jeffrey Nickerson calls the film "incredible" and feels the music is timed perfectly with the footage. The film may be shown on local public access channels in the following weeks.
