Isolation Imagination Film Contest–Winners Reel
Four young filmmakers have been named as winners in the Isolation Imagination Film Contest—a competition to promote creativity during a time of #StayHomeStaySafe.
Bronson Crabtree, 22, of Little Rock—and a graduate of Harding University–won the $150 “Family” award for his “Pieces of History: Kent Westbrook” film, which featured the Native American artifact collection of his grandfather, Dr. Kent Westbrook. Since “family” connections have been an especially important factor for many during isolation, American Dream Genealogy and Research, led by Jeanne Rollberg, offered this award related to Arkansas family, broadly defined, as an effort to capture the first draft of “family history” about Arkansas’s isolation period.
Hannah Rainwater, 17, a senior EAST student at Nettleton High School, won the $150 “Arkansas History” award for her film “Arkansas Strong,” which was shot with social distancing at her home in Jonesboro, at Arkansas State University and at Craighead Forest Park.
Perry Horton, 17, a senior at Conway Christian School, won the $150 “Arkansas Travel” award for his film “COVID-19”, which is a dystopian look at what could happen if Arkansans do not pay attention to pandemic precautions.
In addition, Ella Hubener, 17, a senior at Little Rock Central High School received a $50 Jury Prize for best “vertical format” entry.
