Crazy8s is an annual Vancouver-area short film competition in which dozens of aspiring filmmakers pitch their short film idea and just six will get $800 and eight days to make that idea a reality.
This year, 40 semi-finalists pitched a jury of industry professionals, 12 finalists workshopped their scripts with a professional story editor and six winners got to make their flicks.
One of those was The Weather Girl (or High Pressure Area), which was shot in Port Coquitlam.
The description on the Crazy8s website of the film, written and directed by Carleen Kyle, reads: "A former weather girl struggling with her current role as full-time caregiver for her incapacitated father decides to take creative advantage of two evangelists who show up at her father's door."
Finished films will be screened at a gala event tonight (Friday) in Vancouver.
