Argyle resident and professional videographer Alec Weaver won the “Emerging Artist” award at the Twister Alley Film Festival in Woodward, Oklahoma for his short film “A Wheel Predicament.”
“Twister Alley Film Festival was a great opportunity to network with other artists and filmmakers,” said Alec. “The experience was extremely valuable to me as a filmmaker and I’m very honored to have received the award.”
Alec was called up after the film played to do a short Q&A with the audience about how the film was made. “A Wheel Predicament” was also featured in the Windy City Film Festival in Chicago in July.
“Any director of a comedy film will tell you that laughs are the biggest and best form of payment,” said Alec. “We were thrilled when ‘A Wheel Predicament’ received a lot of laughs from the audience.”
“A Wheel Predicament” was also chosen out of 1300 submissions as an official selection for the Austin Revolution Film Festival, which will be held September 19-23 in Austin, Texas.
Alec and his sister, Rachel Weaver, founded LightStory Productions, Inc., a nonprofit focused on inspiring young filmmakers by bringing faith into film. As children they spent hours making short films together, usually spy-based mission movies.
Founded on Christian principles, LightStory’s purpose is to make a positive difference in people’s lives through film. Their goal is to introduce young people to the art of filmmaking in a fun, interactive, and faith-based way, and to let them be creative with the skills they learn. LightStory Productions, Inc. is currently working on several projects geared to inspire and train young filmmakers.
