Wilson Kearce, a Trevecca senior, scored impressive wins in the 2013 Nashville 48-Hour Film Project. Kearce’s Fort Camo won the Audience Choice Award, was named the Best Film in the “Buddy Film” Category, and was named 2nd runner-up winner of the 40 entries.
The website for the 48-Hour Film Project explains the project:
“On Friday night, you are assigned a character, a prop, a line of dialogue and a genre, that must be included in your movie. 48 hours later, you must submit your film. Next? Your masterpiece will show on the big screen of a local theater!
“In 2013 the 48HFP will visit more than 120 cities where more than 60,000 people will make short films. The Project has truly spread to the four corners of the globe as filmmakers from Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas will compete to see who can make the best short film in a weekend.”
Kearce, a communication and mass media major, was assisted by his three nephews, who acted in the film: Caleb (8), Corban (6), and Cole (4) Crowe. Additionally, Kearce provided the original music score for Fort Camo, wrote and recorded it, and he was the sound supervisor for the film.
Kearce and his nephews were featured in an article about their winning film in the Macon County Times, the newspaper of Lafayette, Tenn., where all four live. The photos used in this article were provided by the Macon County Times.
