UAT's 48 Hour Film "Covet" Wins 4 Awards!

The UAT / Locked Horns / SWAT HD collaboration "Covet" won FOUR awards at last week's IFP/Phoenix "Beat the Clock" event. The film, produced in just 48 hours over the weekend of July 15th through 17th, garnered the following awards:
  • Best Director - for Professor Paul DeNigris
  • Best Use of Line - for our use of the mandated dialogue "As long as it's free..."
  • Best Ensemble - for our amazing cast
  • 2nd Place Film
A complete list of winners can be found on the IFP/Phoenix website.

"Covet" was produced by a team of students and alumni working in conjunction with Professor Paul DeNigris' Locked Horns Productions (including longtime collaborators Steve Briscoe and Laura DeNigris) and Steve Wargo's SWAT HD (a frequent employer of UATDV alumni and students). Cavin Gray ("Parallax"), Amanda Melby ("Screen Wars"), Kane Black ("Fallout"), and Steve Briscoe ("Cowboy Dreams") star, along with student Cedric Katambwa.

For a short time, "Covet" is online on Vimeo: In a couple of weeks it will go into hiding once again as we begin submitting to additional film festivals. Expect it to make a return to the big screen at April's Phoenix Film Festival - or perhaps sooner!
