"Ready? Set? Make a Spark!"
One hundred twelve one-page scripts were considered for our SPARK FORGE FILM FESTIVAL. All featured only two actors -- Faith Aoibhinn DiMarco and Maxwell Kier DiMarco -- and all were set in the same location -- a temperate rainforest. After names were stripped from the scripts, twelve finalists were chosen and all twelve ultra short films were made.
Over two months, 264 viewers paid $2 to attend the online festival, and watch, rate and vote for their favorite films. They knew the Grand Prize winner would be remade into a feature film in 2017.
The twelve finalists were:
BENEATH THE EARTH by Anna Watkins
BIRD, TEA CUP, POCKET WATCH, STONE by Jackson Robert Harm
CRUMBS by Richard Silcox
DAUGHTER OF THE TREES by Anastasia Poole
HIDDEN FROM WITHIN by LaMondtra Atkinson
THE HIKE by Sunny Monroe
THE NECKLACE by Amber Rainey
OUT OF THE WOODS by Angela Faro
PATIENT 04178 by Skye Montague
SALT & TRICK by Jackson Robert Harm
TRADEWIND by Jackson Robert Harm
WAKING UP by Alexandria Olson
Four of these films averaged an incredible 4 out of 5 stars rating:
DAUGHTER OF THE TREES
SALT & TRICK
And the Grand Prize winner and the only film to receive a 5 star average was:
