48 Hour Film Project - Best of Minneapolis
The 48 Hour Film Project wrapped up in Minneapolis. Minneapolis was in the top three for participation in the nation, with 91 teams which had to create a short film in 48 hours. "The Grave Review" won best film and the first runner up was "Fragile". "Fragile" won Best Sound Design, Audience Choice, Best Actress and Director Vaughn Juares won Best Director. It was a sold out event at the Riverview Theater in Minneapolis.
Director Vaughn Juares and Producer Bridget Mcgrath also mention they have a new feature film coming out called "Man Made", which is a apocalyptic thriller about what happens when you clone a human. Watch for this film to be released early spring of 2010, the trailer is amazing.
My experience of the film business in Minneapolis, is that the rest of the nation has some serious competion against these highly experienced and creative individuals. Hollywood better keep an eye on the filmmakers in Minneapolis.
