Beaufort film makers capture awards at Savannah competition

in Arts by

Two Beaufort film makers, Rob Lewis and Brandon Sligh, came home with three trophies following the Savannah 48-Hour Film Project competition.
The four-minute film called “Rachael’s Play Date” won for Best Editing, Best Choreography and Best Use of a Prop. It starred Beaufort’s Robert McFee, Jake Krielkamp,  Gail Westerfield  and 10-year-old Campbell Dukes, daughter of Laura and Marvin Dukes.
The competition gives participants 48-hours to write, shoot and edit a short film. Categories and production requirements are also specified. For example, Lewis and Sligh were asked to develop their film with a “fantasy” theme.
Lewis and Sligh are video production specialists. Lewis is with The County Channel and Sligh is with the City of Hardeeville. The movie can be seen at https://vimeo.com/49135808.
