A little self-congratulation:. Last year in the 48 Hour Film Project moviemaking contest, the Arkansas Times' entry missed the deadline by minutes and was ruled ineligible. No such slip this year. The 10 finalists have been announced and they include our team's effort (David Koon, producer). The 10 will be shown today, Wednesday and Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at Market Street, with the winner, which will go into international competition, to be announced Thursday.
The finalists, in no particular order:
Mr. Beautiful, Zargo Productions
Tracking a Roller, 4 Square 4 Life
Leave of Absence, Standing Strong Productions
Monitor, Snowballs in Hell
By 5, Amalgamated Motion Pictures
Lucy, Rockets Go!
Unnatural Disasters, Team Arkansas Times
Hello Destiny My Name is Dwayne, Sheep Throwing Boy
Jump, Over Easy
