The Timekeeper Completed

The Hot Shot Shorts Contest is proud to announce that the winner of the 2013 Hot Shot Shorts Film Contest, The Timekeeper, written by Cookie Boyle and Walter Sawadsky is now complete and being submitted to film festivals.

Director Scott Weber on set

Scott Weber (Desolation Sound) directed the film which stars Tom McBeath, Tammy Gillis, Darla Taylor, Nathan Dashwood, Maxine Miller, Scott McNeil and Pia Shandel. Heather Howe will produce. The cinematographers are Graham Talbot and Nelson Talbot.

Simon Barry, creator of the acclaimed TV Series Continuum, was the celebrity judge of this year Hot Shot Shorts Contest and helped select the winning script from the TOP 5 finalists which were narrowed down from 82 submissions.

The purpose of the Contest is to provide sponsorship and monetary support to an exceptional local short film script that might not otherwise have the opportunity to be made into a film.

“The amount of support we’ve received is spectacular. The contest inspired a wonderful script to be written and it’s exciting to watch it grow into existence as a film.” – Scott Weber

In The Timekeeper, a watchmaker pawns time from people who waste it so he may give it to others who better values it. If we “spend” time, like we do money, should we not also be able to borrow it, on credit, in just the same way? The Timekeeper reminds us that time is the one luxury that people desire but they cannot buy.
