BrainCo Wins Critic’s Choice Award for Project Hot Potato 2014


Brainco Productions won the Critic’s Choice Award at the 2014 Project Hot Potato competition! The Critic’s Choice award is “determined by a panel of judges composed of filmmakers, writers, actors, and film students. They are asked to watch all four submitted films and choose which they felt was the best short.”

Many thanks to Channel 757 for hosting the project, and many more thanks to all of our amazing cast and crew that worked all day, filmed all night, lost sanity temporarily, but in the end, made this possible. Couldn’t do it without you!


First Public Screening for Project Hot Potato

Why You DON’T Want to Miss Project Hot Potato 2014 (Channel 757)

BrainCo Productions was ecstatic to be included in the production lineup for Channel 757′s latest Project Hot Potato short film contest, where four different teams shot four different segments of the same short film. We were the first team to shoot, followed by the good folks at Mediajack, Fifty One Fifteen Productions, and last, but certainly not least, Jpixx. The film(s) will be screened in its (their?) entirety for the very first time this coming Saturday, along with trailers from other local productions. Come on out and support awesome people!

Also, major kudos to our very own Mr. Nick Ventura, who was nominated for the Most Valuable Actor Award. We’re so proud of him! Fingers crossed that he wins.

Who, what, when, where, how?

Be there or be square!
