168 film project trailer.

 photo Loganlookingattent.jpg

For the past few years Chris has entered a film competition called the 168 film project. There are over 200 teams from all around the world that enter. Each team is given an assignment and they have 168 hours to write, shoot & edit their short film. Then 20 (out of 200 ) are picked for the “top 20” and some of the films from the top 20 get nominated for various awards. Last year Chris decided to enter by himself… he wrote it, filmed it and edited it alone and got nominated for ten awards! And took home four wins! 

This year the winner takes home up to a One Million Dollar Movie deal. He entered the competition alone this year again and I could not be more proud of his beautiful work. They turned in the their projects today and are only allowed to share their trailers until August when all of the awards are given out. 

Here is this year’s movie trailer!

    Oh my word, he has great vision. I WISH I could afford to have a book trailer made for my novel. Over the past two years, I've wanted so badly to have one made! Anyway, I feel if I ever did approach it, I would ask your husband to film it. I believe he would hold the same vision I have carried in my mind since it was published.
    Any hoo, I said a prayer that if this competition is indeed in God's plan for your family, then I pray that he wins. What a great opportunity it would be! Best of luck to him & your family!
