Thanks to your votes, the pyromaniacal "Ape" won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!
Congratulations to “Ape" director Joel Potrykus. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Sundance Institute.
Here's what the project's about:
Trevor Newandyke is a struggling comedian. Not only does he bomb on stage, but he bombs in everyday life. He’s fed up with all the jerks who push him around. All he wants is a break, and for someone to get him. Instead of taking a breath and getting himself together or taking his anger to the stage, he turns to the loud din of his headphones and the crackling glow of fire to ease his mind. He’s not only a lousy comic, but a pyromaniac, as well.
Four more Projects of the Day coming this week. Want your project to be considered? Tell us all about it.
