HUDSON — Film students from Columbia University are in Hudson this week for production of a short film.

The student crew was prepping the former Taconic Biosciences offices at 1 Hudson City Centre at the intersection of Green and State streets Tuesday afternoon.

The 15-to-20 person group is made mostly of Columbia University graduate students, said graduate student Catherine Kosiba, who is helping to produce the short film.

“This is our first day here and we’ll be here [Hudson] until Sunday,” Kosiba said. “We’re filming an office scene today, a main office scene.”

The film will be called “Three Corner House,” Kosiba said, adding the project is for the students’ graduate thesis.

“It’s a dark family drama that exposes secrets within a family.”

Hudson is a popular place that gets a lot of attention from people in New York City, said Kosiba, who is originally from Austin, Texas.

The students will be filming in places throughout Hudson this week.

“The director was looking for a feel of a town,” Kosiba said. “We took the drive up here, checked it out and decided it was a decent place for our project.”
