Winner - Andre Ray - Elevated Remedies
As a man prepares to shoot himself he notices another man about to jump off a building and intervenes.
Runner up - Nabil Nona – Consequences
We shot this film in Sterling Heights & Madison Heights, Michigan. Amazing local talent from the producers, writer, DP, sound engineer, editor, and an exceptional cast, I was honored to produce & direct this short. This short is about an autistic son who is one more burden to a father whose sole goal is money to feed his unwholesome habits. Dad formulates a wicked plan to have his son mistakenly killed by zealous police. As dad watches, the police close on the innocent.
People's Choice Award winner - Anetria Cole - Street Numbers & Street Sweepers
Street Numbers & Street Sweepers is the story of the 1920's African-American Numbers racket in Pontiac and Black Bottom Detroit ran by the Evans family. The family earns money in a way that some in the community disagree with. But is their way of getting money good? Or is it evil? Story created by Anetria Cole.
