Vote for January Project of the Month: Will It Be 'Love's Labour's Lost,' 'The Truthful Phone,' 'Lazy Eye' or 'Poor Mama's Boy'?

[Editors Note: Project of the Month is presented in partnership with Blackmagic Design, one of the world’s leading innovators and manufacturers of creative video technology.]

The project which receives the most votes for Project of the Month will get a reported feature story about their project on Indiewire and will receive a Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve 12 License. From there, they will be in the running for Project of the Year.

Below are the four projects up for the prize. Click on the film title to learn more about each project (descriptions courtesy of the filmmakers):

Love’s Labour’s Lost: Four boarding school boys, distracted by four enchanting exchange students, struggle to keep a vow of chastity in this new adaptation of Shakespeare’s bawdy comedy.

The Truthful Phone: Imagine a Welsh Gremlins with shades of Guillermo del Toro. Based on a short story by Monty Python’s Terry Jones, “The Truthful Phone” is an homage to eighties films like “Labyrinth,” “The Goonies” and “ET.”

Lazy Eye: When Dean, a 40-year-old graphic designer, unexpectedly hears from Alex, the ex he hasn’t seen in 15 years, the two meet for a weekend at a house in the desert near Joshua Tree.

Poor Mama’s Boy: Set in rural Arkansas, Poor Mama’s Boy tells the story of a neglected 17-year-old who is suspected in the disappearance of a young girl, but soon discovers the truth may sacrifice the only thing he holds dear… his family.

Voting will end Monday, February 8 at 5:00 ET.
