By WestKyStar Staff
PADUCAH, KY - A team from Hopkins County is this year's grand prize winner of the 2012 Paducah 48 Hour Film Project.
Burning Bush Productions, of Nortonville, won four awards including Best Picture for "TimmyVision", a short movie about a pre-schooler whose late night TV viewing comes back to haunt him.
"Apocalypse Meow" by SRT Films of Paducah won the Audience Award, as voted on by those who attended last week's screenings of all the films.
Thirteen teams from Paducah, Vienna, Carbondale, and Nashville took part in this year's competition.
The awards were handed out Thursday night at a ceremony held at Maiden Alley Cinema in downtown Paducah. "Timmy Vision" will now compete against winners of other 48 Hour Film Projects from around the world next March at Filmapalooza 2013 in Los Angeles.
The 48 Hour Film Project pits film makers against one another and the clock, as teams must write, film, edit and score a seven minute movie in 48 hours or less.
