We hope you haven’t missed us too much! Today Walskifilm released a new short entitled The Knot, directed by Sean Walter and starring Wes Peterson and Bryan Simcox. In this movie, A young man discovers why his friend has been acting a bit odd lately.
Well folks, the Internet had a good run, but we here at Walskifilm think it has run its course. With spam taking over everything from email to web ads, it’s just become too much. Therefore we will be shutting down our site effective today. You can purchase our movies on DVDs from now on (DVDs unfortunately cost money, so we will no longer be able to distribute our movies for free). Don’t fret, faithful Walskifilm fans! We will be as alive as ever without the Internet to distract us. If you wish to contact us, please do so in writing from now on. You can reach us at this address.

Panasonic TM700 Purchase
Walskifilm has finally upgraded to high definition! We recently purchased a Panasonic HDC-TM700. The TM700 can film full 1080p HD footage in up to 60 progressive frames per second using a 35 mm lens and Panasonic’s 3MOS sensor system! This represents quite an upgrade from our previous, standard definition camera. Click here to view a video demonstration of the camera’s beautiful capabilities.
48 Hour Film Challenge
From June 16th through the 18th, Sean Walter, Wes Peterson, and Bryan Simcox rushed to create a 3 minute film for the IFP’s 48 Hour Film Challenge. The team was given a line of dialog, a prop, and a choice of two genres to include in a film written, filmed, and edited all within 48 hours. With minutes to spare, the team submitted the film on time. This was also a major milestone for Walskifilm as it was the first film to include real actors.
The short film will be playing, along with all the other contestants’ videos, in the 48 Hour Film Challenge Screening Event at the Phoenix Art Museum this Friday the 23rd. There will be two showings: one starting at 6:00pm and another at 8:00pm. Tickets are $15 and grant you access to one showing of your choice and the awards presentation.
