Anacortes High School Takes Top Honors In Teen Filmmaking Contest For Second Time In A Row

What do you get when you mix an eye patch, a car crash, and the quote "How do you get to the airport from here?" If you're a member of Anacortes High School's filmmaking team The Seniors, it's a recipe for success.

 
PRLog - Feb. 22, 2008 - BELLINGHAM, Wash. -- What do you get when you mix an eye patch, a car crash, and the quote "How do you get to the airport from here?" If you're a member of Anacortes High School's filmmaking team The Seniors, it's a recipe for success.

Anacortes High School’s filmmaking team The Seniors was awarded first place in the Guerilla Film Project "fast film" competition for their movie “Guilt Trip.” An Anacortes High team also took the top prize in the previous Guerilla competition for the film “Silhouette.”  The awards were announced at a February 10 ceremony at the American Museum of Radio and Electricity in Bellingham.

   Sedro Woolley’s Team One took second place for “To Kill an Agent,” and third went to “Back Flash” by Apple Pi/Amish Porcupine from Sehome High School. The People’s Choice award went to Blaine High School’s team Rhymes with Orange for “She Said She Loved Me.”

   The twelve competing teams had just three days to write, shoot and edit a short film. To make sure that nobody could make their film in advance, films had to include three items that were announced at the start of the contest: an eye patch, a car crash, and the line “How do you get to the airport from here?”

   A panel of independent filmmakers judged the entries on script, camera work, sound, and overall impact. Audiences weighed in by voting on the People’s Choice Award. The winning films will be shown at the Whatcom Museum of History and Art’s Careers in the Arts Day on April 25.

   The Guerilla Film Project is part of NW Projections, a celebration of northwest film produced by the Whatcom Film Association. To learn more or to register for the next Guerilla in March 2009, visit the GFP MySpace page.

   NW Projections 2008 was made possible by a presenting sponsorship from Comcast Cable and support by Whatcom Educational Credit Union, Hand Crank Films, Camcord@Large, Premier Graphics, Mt. Baker Planned Parenthood, Cascadia Weekly, Mallard’s Ice Cream and the Bagelry.

   The Whatcom Film Association, a non-profit organization based in Bellingham, Wash., operates the Pickford, Bellingham’s only independent movie house, and produces the True/False Festival, Doctober, and the Traveling Outdoor Cinema as well as NW Projections.
