Short Film Contest Draws Jackson Filmmakers

For the sixth year, Wyoming’s Film Commission is sponsoring a short film contest with a top prize of $25,000.  Contest Coordinator Colin Stricklin says the event has traditionally attracted no small number of Jackson Hole filmmakers and twice, Jackson Hole cinematographers won the contest. In fact, Stricklin says David Gonzales of Jackson won the contest the very first year.  More recently, “Highway 22 Revisited” by Jennifer Tennican won the top prize with which she was able to complete a much more expanded DVD of the same title. Stricklin says this year there is a documentary out of Jackson about dance and a music video set in front of the Tetons.  Entry into the contest may be done online between now and April fifth.  Then, Stricklin says, the public viewing them online and a professional filmmaker will each choose five to move on to the final round. Stricklin says “We’ve got some real top-notch stuff this year!”  He says usually, there are 40 to 50 entries in the contest, but so far they have received only about 25.  He says typically, that number about doubles in the last couple of days before the deadline. Stricklin says the voting will then take a couple weeks with the winner to be announced April 19th. Stricklin points out that while only one of the filmmakers emerges as the winner, the contest provides a forum for them to put their work in front of other filmmakers and showcase their material

  • A lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
