We are absolutely DELIGHTED to announce that GPS has received runner-up for this month’s HTN short film contest!
HUGE thanks to judges Brent Hoff (Wholphin DVD), Ry Russo-Young (Nobody Walks), and Gus Péwé (winner of the June 2012 Student Filmmaker Challenge) for pulling us from the pile. Also grateful to Michael Tully for writing us such an eloquent review! Here’s what he said about the film:
“Fall in love with someone, then marry them. Who cares where they’re from, who cares what they look like. As long as you love them, that’s all that matters, right? If only it were that simple. And in many—or should I say all—ethnic cultures throughout this wonderful world of ours, that approach to marriage isn’t just unfathomable; it’s sacrilegious! By inserting this complicated real-life issue into a J-horror movie, Columbia University’s Stephani Wu and Andres Rosende have delivered a wake-up call to so much of the tired bigger-budget horror spectacles that consistently pelt our multiplexes like dumb hailstorms. In the future, one hopes that these young filmmakers will continue to hold themselves up to a simultaneously high standard when it comes to both form and content.”
Again, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this film possible.
Peace. May Buddha be with you. :)
