“21 Film Project” Contest: We’re in!

August 13, 2009

We just got the call that our video, “Pain” made it into the Top 20 in Land of Lincoln Credit Union’s “21 Film Project“!

There is a big shindig planned for August 22nd, with workshops, red carpets, and prize drawings. They cap off the night with a screening of the Top 20, and then give out the awards. I’m so bummed out though, because I won’t be able to make it! Alida and I have a shoot that night, so I’ll  will be anxiously awaiting a call/text/telegraph with the results. Jim Wilkerson, the other half of this endeavor, was also busy, but was able to rearrange his schedule to make it.  He’ll hopefully be able to give me a play-by-play of who wins what.

Here are the award categories:

  1. Best Film
  2. Best Actor/Actress
  3. Best Editing
  4. Best Direction
  5. Best Use of LLCU Logo and Tagline

Wish us luck!!


“21 Film Project” Contest: Part Three

August 3, 2009


The deadline for the “21 Film Project” contest has past, meaning I can post our entry now! I technically could have posted it Friday, but one of the actors was out of town. We insisted on being there when he watched it, to see his reaction. Now that he has seen it, I can post it. So here it is, our 2009 entry, “Pain” :

“21 Film Project” Contest: Part Two

July 21, 2009

In a previous entry I posted a video that I entered into the Land of Lincoln Credit Union film contest last year. This year, I teamed up with another film-making co-worker. In my last post you may have noticed the crudely-drawn picture of a woman giving birth to  a loan. We didn’t go with anything that graphic, but we stuck to the same theme. I think it will be pretty funny, and hopefully it will be clever enough to get us placed in this contest.

We wrapped up shooting tonight, and I thought I would throw out a little teaser clip since I haven’t posted anything in a really long time. This is me, dismantling a bomb in my basement.

Yes I made that bomb. No, it’s not real C-4, it’s a Christmas ornament box wrapped in paper. Hopefully other people will find this stuff as funny as I do. If not, I’ll just sit and laugh to myself.

Be on the lookout for the finished product, coming up soon! Also, check back Friday for an awesome post!
