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

    I don’t understand why it’s happening now, when the temperatures are dropping well below zero, but my golden retriever’s blowing her coat. In a big way. And it’s not just her. Our collie’s doing the same thing, and to a much bigger degree. At least the golden has some abilities that allow me to overlook […]

  • Don’t commercialize hunting - November 20, 2014
    The state of New Jersey is dealing with a huge whitetail deer overpopulation problem. To get more people to get out and hunt those deer, and hopefully bring the population down to a more manageable level, the state is toying with the idea of allowing the commercial sale of meat from wild deer. It’s a […]
