Team Leader: CB Shamah
Odds: 5 to 1
CB had a hand in the feature film SPREE which is screening as part of STIFF 2008 and it proves that he has the means to put together something truly unique and very cool. Team ASCOT has some excellent film and music connections around town, which will most likely come in very handy for their very first WFC Film. There is one big question on my mind though. While it is an incredible feather in a filmmaker’s cap to complete a feature, making a concise short film is a whole different task. Many accomplished feature filmmakers have struggled with the short form and nothing is worse than a short that is too long. Can Team ASCOT successfully transition back into a team that can tell a short story that is short enough? We know it is going to be good, but just how good is a mystery (which makes the genre selection super appropriate!)
