2008 Creative Spirit competition

Creative Spirit soars at third annual screeningFor the third year in a row, the Creative Spirit Script-to-Screen competition produced two polished films in a frantic week of shooting and editing. On Oct. 11, the exhausted filmmakers showed completed works to an enthusiastic Hollywood audience.

The two winners were “The Migration” and “Liminality.” Along with “Edgar’s Journey,” a Creative Spirit project in New Mexico. The films impressed a theater full of industry insiders and Indians.

A young Indian man gets more than he bargained for when he enters a reservation bar looking for help against a gang of vampire bikers.

“Edgar’s Journey”

An Indian actor lost in the woods helps two children find their way and, in doing so, finds himself.
