SUMMIT COUNTY ANIMAL CONTROL AND SHELTER ANNOUNCES
2019 FILM CONTEST WINNERS
SUMMIT COUNTY, CO – On March 8, 2019, Summit County Animal Control and Shelter announced the winners of the 2019 Film Contest at the Bow Wow Film Festival at Warren Station in Keystone as being Nature Currey and Ella Williams. Both girls attend Summit High School and created the film as a project for the Ecological Ethics Union Club.
Movies were to be under three minutes in length and show the relationship between humans and their pets. According to Nature, their film was, “created through different perspectives to show the relationship between a dog (Luke) and his owner. We filmed parts from the dog’s perspective to show how the dog sees things. This movie shows a day in the life of Luke.”
As winners of the competition, they received gift certificates from three of the sponsors; the Keystone Adventure Center where they can enjoy kayaking or ice-skating, Lakeside Bowling and Cameez, both in Dillon. Luke, the dog, received a gift certificate to A&A Pet Supply and Feed.
