OKLAHOMA CITY (Sept. 7, 2016) – The western, super hero, comedy short film, The Bulleteers was produced at the 48-Hour Film Project and received five awards over the weekend. The awards included “Best Wardrobe,” “Best Set Design,” “Best Cinematography,” “Runner-Up Best Film” and “Audience Choice.”
The Oklahoma City 48-Hour Film Project is a contest in which teams of filmmakers are assigned a genre, character, prop and line of dialogue, and they have 48 hours to create a short film containing all of those elements. This year, the teams drew: an illustrator named Mark or Maureen Linderville for the character, an auto part for the prop and “I have a surprise for you” for the line.
Lampstand Media and Limelight Productions partnered with Freestyle Creative to produce The Bulleteers, which was screened on Aug. 7, 2016 at the OKC Farmers Public Market. The film was written by Matthew Price and Sean Theissen and directed by Kyle Roberts.
“I am so proud of the team and all the hard work they put into the making of this film. I am always impressed by the talent that comes out of Oklahoma,” Roberts said.
The film will appear in upcoming festivals such as the Wild Bunch Film Festival in Tishomingo, Oklahoma on September 23 – 25 and the Urban Action Showcase presented by Cinemax in Times Square, New York in November.
“I love the 48-Hour Film competition and all of the opportunities it provides,” Roberts said.
