Thanks to your votes, the eco-drama "Dust" won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!
Congratulations to “Dust" director Mike Grier. 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:
Dust takes place in a world that is rapidly changing. Each year new species and adaptations alter the balance of their ecosystems. Throughout history Trackers have studied shifts in the environment and taught people to live in harmony with the natural world. With the advancement of technology people’s views began to shift and the Tracker ways were abandoned. Now a deadly new plague linked to a mysterious dust is devastating the countryside around Kabé—the world’s oldest city. Filmed on location in Shikoku, Japan, this VFX intensive short film offers a first glimpse into the world of Dust.
More Projects of the Day coming this week. Want your project to be considered? Tell us all about it.
