World Wide Clout

World Wide Clout, bitches, WORLD WIDE CLOUT!


Here it is, the official cover to the movie, and the official announcement – we came in 3rd Place in the 2009 Dogfish Head Off-Centered Film Fest! For real.

This is what Dogfish Head has to say so far:

2009 Off-Centered Film Fest Winners Announced

Thu, 03/19/2009 – 1:10pm

Another year of the Off-Centered Film Fest meant another great night of watching short films, drinking Dogfish beer and making tough decisions. The competition was fierce and the arm-wrestling was fun, but in the end we had three short films that we look forward to showing you in Austin, TX for the April 3 & 4, 2009 Off-Centered Film Festival.

Without further ado, here are the winners:

First Place:
Christopher Rose Dogfish Head Commercial
Director, Christopher Rose
Austin, TX

Second Place:
Psychedelic Dogfish Head Beer Commercial
Director, Dax Norman
Sunnydale, CA

Third Place
World Wide Clout
Director: Erik Mitchell
Philadelphia, PA

These three films, with a selection of the additional entries will be screening at the Off-Centered Film Festival on April 3 & 4, 2009 at the Alamo Drafthouse, Lake Creek in Austin Texas. Event information, ticket pricing and information about the event are available through at the Off-Centered Film Fest website.
Thank you to everyone involved in the film submitted to the 2009 Off-Centered Film competition, we had a great time watching all the entries!
Stay tuned to to watch the winners (we’ll get them up after the premiere in Austin!) and for information about the 2010 Off-Centered Film Fest!
We’ll also post a list of additional films to be screened at the fest once we get it.

And, if you’re just coming up to speed, this is what I’ve had to say so far: here, here, and over here.

I really don’t know too much information yet. I do know the Fest is the first weekend in April, April 3rd and 4th (two weeks from now!), in Austin, TX. And, I know my ass is gonna be down there one way or another! More later.

    Third Prize:
    $500 cash-o-la
    Plus airfare for 1 submitting director to Austin, TX for the 2009 Off-Centered Film Fest (up to $400)
    -Two nights hotel in Austin, TX during the Off-Centered Film Fest
    -Admission to both nights of the Off-Centered Film Festival (2 people per night, per film)
    -Dogfish Head Schwag Bag

    Pretty Sweet. There will be three of us going down so we still need to buy some stuff to flush it out, but those prizes are a great start. Second and First were the same except the cash was $750 and $1000.

    Also, which will be major cool, the film gets shown on a full size movie screen for the “world premier” – it’ll be too funny!

    I love it! I want to see the first and second place films since I can’t imagine one let alone two better than yours. Will they ultimately be posted for viewing?

    Austin is awesome, you are going to have soooo much fun!

  6. Brian Says:

    Yeah, I can’t wait to see 1st and 2nd also – I know they are both “commercials”, so I would assume less than 60 seconds. One was made by an animator, so it is probably a cartoon. But, after the “premier” they are all supposed to be posted on DFH’s website, I will put up a link when they are.
