“Unwanted” takes second place at Waynesboro Film Festival

The short film “Unwanted” that Hank Ebert and I put together for the Bike Shorts Festival recently took second place in the audience vote at the Waynesboro Film Festival in Waynesboro, Virginia.

We also took second at the audience vote at the bike festival, too. We are the kings of second place!

Video: The short film “Unwanted” in the Bike Shorts Film Festival

Just about every year, Salem filmmaker Hank Ebert and I collaborate on a short film. The past two years, it’s been an entry in the local edition of the Bike Shorts Film Festival — short films about bicycles.

This year’s entry was “Unwanted.”

The cast includes Kelly Anglim, Charlie Boswell, Martha Boswell, Noah Jones, Nancy Lawrence, Gary Reid, Blair Peyton, Chad Snyder, Ana Uotinen, Lauren Uotinen and Katerina Yancey. Here’s the result.

We didn’t win the judges’ prize; that went to a wonderful documentary that a London-based filmmaker made about bicycles in Cuba. Hard to beat that! We didn’t win the audience vote in Roanoke, either. That went to a film that was 17 minutes long (even though the rules said 10 minutes). But I’m told we did come in second.

Here are some still photos from the filming, which was done in March.

If you’d like to check out our previous efforts, they’re here:

In the past, we’ve done:
* “My Kid Could Paint That” for a festival at the Grandin Theatre in 2009
* “Back to the Future” for a Sweded film festival in the 2012 Marginal Arts Festival.
* “The Secret Lives of Goldfish” for the 2013 Bike Shorts Festival (behind-the-scenes photos here.)

I’m a stage guy, not a film guy. But once a year, Salem filmmaker Hank Ebert and I wind up collaborating on a short film for various local competitions.

In the past, we’ve done:
* “My Kid Could Paint That” for a festival at the Grandin Theatre in 2009
* “Back to the Future” for a Sweded film festival in the 2012 Marginal Arts Festival.
* “The Secret Lives of Goldfish” for the 2013 Bike Shorts Festival (behind-the-scenes photos here.)

This year, Hank and I once again have teamed up to produce a short film for the Bike Shorts Festival, which, as the name implies, is seeking short films about bicycles.

Since the entry deadline hasn’t passed  yet, and the film showing isn’t until early May, I won’t give away TOO many details, but below are some photos from our two film shoots on March 1 and March 8. You can find the entire set here.
