AND THE WINNERS ARE ... >>>
The Grand Cinema's 72 Hour Film Festival was a whirlwind movie-making cram session. Teams of filmmakers were given a prop, action, a situation, and a line of dialogue and then pushed out of The Grand's front door to write, shoot, and edit a film in just 72 hours. The Rialto Theater was packed last night for the showing of the resulting 23 films - all under 5 minutes.
The Weekly Volcano film critics will pipe in later today with their thoughts on last night's films. In the meantime, here are the winners:
Best Use of Dialogue ("Should I know what that means?"): U-253 by Bryan Johnson, Mark Bardwil (spoke the line) and their team
Best Use of a Prop (map): Larry's Odyssey by Terese Cuff's team
Best Use of Action (breaking): The Device by Dylan Parry's team
Best Use of the situation (a bag must be used in the first minute with something important in it): Zen Arcade by Rick Gratzer's team
Honorable Mention: The Genie of Tacoma by Erik Hanberg's team
Best Film: Stolen by Jordan Rhone's team
The Audience Award: Alone? In the Wilderness? By Isaac Olsen's team
