Last Saturday, the Independent Filmmaker's Coalition of Kansas City held it's annual "One Night Stand" contest, in which filmmakers are challenged to make a short movie in just 10 hours. Nearly 20 teams spent the day sweating and filming. Among them: musician John Bersuch and producer-videographer Scott Johnson. Their film, ENDANGERED, won second place at the IFC's screening Saturday night. 



Teams were required to meet at the Just Off

Broadway Theater, 3051 Central, for registration

beginning at 9 a.m. Half an hour later, a theme (You won't believe what

happened!), an object (a can), and a

line of dialogue from a famous movie ("You can't handle the truth!")

were drawn at random, and teams were required to work all three into

their films.

The contestants were required to get back to the theater to turn their finished (or unfinished!) films to IFCKC by 7:30 p.m.. 

At 8 p.m., delegates from

the film and television industry screened the films and selected three Judges' Awards.

First place went to Jim Schweers, Todd Norris and the cast of Team Big Sale (they also won the Audience Choice award). ENDANGERED, by Scott Johnson Productions (which included Eric Graves, Joseph Pollock, John Paul Giago and Johnson, left to right, in the photo on this page), took 2nd place, and 3rd place went to David Berry and David Winger of Double D Productions.

You can watch ENDANGERED, Johnson's production, below. Bersuch's music is awesome. (Full disclosure: I stopped by Johnson's shoot on Saturday, not knowing I'd be recruited as a cast member, and ended up atop a giant recycling truck. Check out my cameo at the end.)
