Just eight years after writing, directing and acting in his film at age 6, 14-year-old Luke Broyle is preparing to premiere his eighth feature film and has created 20 to 25 short films.

“I like how movies tell stories and are very captivating,” the Westfield resident said, adding he enjoys filmmaking because it brings stories to life.

A career highlight was being screened at the 2010 Heartland Film Festival High School Competition as an 11 year old.

“I’m the youngest filmmaker at Heartland,” Broyles said. “It’s encouraging especially at a festival that size.”

Broyles said he is inspired by directors Alfred Hitchcock and Steven Spielberg.

“With Hitchcock it’s the suspense and how he keeps you interested,” he said. “Spielberg is controversial in a good way. His movies seem a little ahead of its time.”

Broyles’ parents, Tim and Donna, began watching behind-the-scenes portions of DVDs when Luke was 3. They started with “Jurassic Park” hoping to alleviate fear by showing the story was made up and how the dinosaurs were built – but Broyles had other ideas.

“I can do this,” he remembered. “I’ve always liked behind the scenes.”

Broyles’ eighth feature film, “Trapped,” is his first foray into the suspense mystery genre.

“It’s about nine people who are trapped in a room and they have to figure out how to get out and who trapped them in the first place,” he said. “It was hard because you have to figure it all out – it’s a more complicated story.”

Broyles said the movie’s idea came to him six years ago and he began writing the script two years ago. The 70-minute-long film was shot on Aug. 4 through 6 in the basement of Verity Institute in Indianapolis, the former

“Trapped” will be premiered on Feb. 23 at the Mill Top Banquet & Conference Center, 802 Mulberry St., Noblesville.
