Indie hip-hop, tuba films win Short Cuts contest

Posted By on Fri, Mar 2, 2012 at 9:53 AM

A capacity audience crowded into Creative Loafing's Printhouse space last night for a screening of the 10 finalists of the 2012 ATL Short Cuts Film Contest. Following the exhibition of the films — all addressing the theme of Atlanta music in five minutes or less — I announced the Critic's Choice winner: W. Feagins Jr.'s "UNDEREXPOSED: Indie Hip-Hop in Atlanta," with its remarkably expansive and energetic portrayal of the artists contributing to the ATL's indie hip-hop scene. (Last night minor technical difficulties made us briefly nervous that we wouldn't be able to screen "UNDEREXPOSED" for the SRO audience, but we were able to show it as the last film on the bill. Whew.)

The critic's choice runner-up was Tim Redman's "Goal-Tender of the Orchestra, or Velvet Carpet," a smart and whimsical portrait of Michael Moore, tuba player for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra:

In addition to the prize package, the winner and runner-up will be screened at this year's Atlanta Film Festival, March 23-April 1. So will the Viewers Choice winner and runner-up, which will be calculated partly based on ballots filled out at last night's screening, and partly by on-line voting here.
