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

  • Diapers weren’t a magic bullet for staying cool - July 25, 2014
    I promised you yesterday that I’d test a new product to see how well it works to keep you cool when the temperatures climb toward triple digits.   In case you missed it, yesterday I talked about seeing an ad on TV for a new type of training pants. The ad said, and I quote, […]
  • I’ll try anything to stay cool in the summer - July 24, 2014
    I recently saw an advertisement for a product that’s sure to be a big hit with outdoorsmen. Especially those of us who stomp around in the woods when the temperatures climb into the nineties. Last weekend, I found myself sitting in jeans, boots, a long-sleeved shirt and a cowboy hat at Cheyenne Frontier Days. While […]
