NYWIFT Members Receive NYSCA Production Grants

Three NYWIFT members, participants in NYWIFT's Fiscal Sponsorship Program, have received Grants from the New York State Council on the Arts.  The filmmakers include Christina Eliopoulos for DEMON ON WHEELS, Hilla Medalia for CAUGHT IN THE NET and Moon Molson for THE BRAVEST, THE BOLDEST.

Demon on Wheels is the story of a rugged Catskill Mountains man, an incredibly fast car, and the long, rough ride toward an impossible dream. Mike Ondish—daredevil, bootlegger, inventor and master mechanic—-drove the Demon, a one-of-a-kind 1968 Mustang, custom-modified by Le Mans Champion and automotive legend Carroll Shelby. Mike put the car away in 1975. Thirty years later, Mike vows to rebuild and restore his car and race her on a championship track.

Caught in the Net
is a film about three teens in China, the first country in the world to classify Internet addiction as a clinical disorder. The film features a Beijing treatment center where Chinese teenagers are being de-programmed. The film follows the lives of the three teens from the day they arrive, through their three months treatment period, and then their return home. The film provides a microcosm of modern Chinese life by investigating one of the symptoms of the Internet age, while examining intergenerational pressures of minors who get caught in the net.

The Bravest, the Boldest is a short film that explores the conflict between human empathy and protocol when two army notification officers enter a housing project to notify a woman of her son’s death in combat. The film was shot over a six-day period in August 2012 in New York City and is currently in post-production.
