Vote for Project of the Week: Will It Be ‘The Devil On Wheels,’ ‘The Rising Star Project,’ ‘Ovum’ or ‘America’s Blues’?

Vote for Project of the Week: Will It Be 'The Devil On Wheels,' 'The Rising Star Project,' 'Ovum' or 'America's Blues'?

The winning filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and will become a candidate for the March Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a creative consultation from the fine folks at the Tribeca Film Institute and will be in the running for Project of the Year.

The four projects up for this week’s Project of the Week are listed below (with descriptions courtesy of the filmmakers). You can vote at the bottom of the page.

The Devil on Wheels: “The Devil On Wheels” will explore Spielberg’s “Duel” from its making to the way fans keep it very much alive. Fans are the driving force!

The Rising Star Project: Documentary following 100 high school students who put on a million dollar musical in Seattle’s 5th Ave Theatre and how mentoring changes their lives.

Ovum: “Ovum” is a dark comedy about a quirky Brooklyn actress who tries The Method to approach an Off-Broadway role and is drawn into the strange world of egg donation clinics and the unlikely characters who populate them: from unscrupulous doctors with mind bending fertility drugs to the broken, nihilistic model donors.

America’s Blues: A documentary that explores the impact that Blues Music has had on our society, popular culture, and the entertainment industry.

Voting will end Monday, April 6 at 11 a.m. ET.

Rising Star Project! Love that such an amazing experience for our creative youth is free of charge. Teens need this so much, and families can’t always afford to provide the experience for their children.

It broke my heart to hear that there was little truth to the Robert Johnson story on the back of the Mississippi Delta Blues Record Cover. I used to listen to these Blues Records, that stand on their own. This is where the technology was even pushed. But it is the stories I care about.

RisingStar project gives students a chance to learn along professionals and is a life changing experience that shapes their future


Ovum shows the real and dark struggle young female actresses of New York city subject themselves through to survive in their career. A true story of discovery, experimentation, and the hardship of choosing financing a passion versus falling into an everyday dull and uninspiring job. This film reflects a true moment in modern film history.

Devil On Wheels is going to be special. Some high level endorsement and co-operation there. Well worth the vote (and more!)
