Another Award Winning Video From the 2008 Teen Film Fest

February 18, 2009

Here’s another award winning video from the 2008 Teen Film Fest.  Check it out!  A pair of dedicated teens from Moline, who also just happen to be brothers, created this spectacular piece based on Hatchet by Gary Paulsen to fit the “Alternate Ending” theme.  They ended up taking home the Librarian’s Choice Award, which was one of two grand prize awards that came with a trophy and a $100 cash prize.  During their acceptance speech at last year’s red-carpet premiere at the Putnam Museum & IMAX Theatre, they said they were putting their winnings right back into the budget for next year’s film.  They also snagged another trophy for best editing.  Sounds like we have some true filmmakers on our hands, eh?  Can’t wait to see what they do for this year’s film fest.  Way to go guys!  Looks like your hard work and talent really paid off!
