Three college dropouts have a wild weekend carrying out a staged kidnapping. “Youth, Go to Waste!” directed by Samuel Leonard Valenti, is a punk/sleaze throwback carried by fierce performances by Hannah Gold (playing Camille) and Renee Giannoblie (playing Aubrey), in their finest ‘cool girl, don’t care’ getups. As they skip town, Camille narrates: “The plan was to kidnap Noodle, so we could get money off his rich parents.” At the hideaway, they stage photos, and send off the ransom package. When it’s over, Noodle has one thing on his mind, “Let’s fucking party.” But while he may be in on the plan, that doesn’t mean the girls like him, especially when his excessive drug use threatens to derail the whole shindig. Produced as an Undergrad film at Temple University. [Watch on YouTube]. (18 minutes). Starring Hannah Gold, Renee Giannoblie and Conor Logan. Written and directed by Samuel Leonard Valenti.
