Thanks to your votes, the sports film “The Sticking Place Interactive Documentary,” won this weekend’s Project of the Week.
Congratulations to directors Josephine Anderson and Brittany Baxter. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Sundance Institute.
“The Sticking Place” is an imaginative interactive documentary about Leah Callahan, a women’s freestyle wrestler currently ranked number two in Canada. At Nationals Leah narrowly lost in the last second to the ten-time National Champion. Surviving doubt, elation, breakdowns and revelations, now is Leah’s chance to win the one spot to the 2012 Olympics. The film follows Leah’s quest via an interactive multimedia website, where viewers are asked to actively participate in the act of storytelling itself. The Sticking Place challenges viewers to playfully but critically examine conventional truisms about what it means to have a dream and follow it.
Four more Projects of the Day coming this week, with the next vote on Friday. Want your project to be considered? Tell us all about it.
