ONTV’S WILDWOOD FILM FESTIVAL A SUCCESS
Festival Raises Funds NOCC
Orion Neighborhood Television, Orion’s community access television station, would like to thank all of the participants who took part in the ninth annual Wildwood Film Festival held on Oct. 26.
Movie goers arrived at the Oxford 7 theater for the screening of eight short films produced by Lake Orion area filmmakers. Winners include: first place, “Overtime” produced by Calvin Green and Vincent Martocci, second place, “Curse of the Pizza Box” produced by Jamison Fanning and third place, “Sweet Nothings” produced by Emma Pichan and The People’s Choice Award went to “Purple Haze” produced by Casey Houlihan and Brandon Kathman.
Ian Locke, ONTV Executive Director stated, “This special event really showcases how many talented filmmakers we have in Lake Orion and the surrounding area. This year we had a lot of first-time film makers, and I have to say we were very impressed. The production quality keeps getting better and better every year. We’ve been doing the film festival for 9 years and we’re glad we can continue to provide this opportunity to the community while supporting various local charities.
ONTV would also like to thank its sponsors for adding to the success of this year’s festival: The Oxford Tap, Imaginos Workshop and Shining Taku. Filmmakers were given the challenge of producing a 10 minute film in five days. Each group was given a prop, location and a line of dialog which they had to use in their film. The producers worked in groups with production equipment supplied by Orion Neighborhood Television.
