We finally have the results of our judges scores and the winners of our REEL Authentico Video Contest!
The Downtown Management District (DMD) invited local filmmakers to produce a video capturing the spirit of ‘Authentico’ in Downtown El Paso (DTEP) in a contest for a chance to be in an INSIDER feature article, have their video distributed on the official Downtown El Paso Youtube channel, and be presented at the Plaza Classic Film Festival (August 6, 2017 @ 2:30pm in the Foundation Room 333 N. Oregon)! If that’s not enough, first, second and third prizes will be awarded gift cards to Downtown El Paso businesses of their choice!
Contestants were asked to highlight an area, spotlight people, a local scene, or provide any narrative that shows the authenticity of downtown, while keeping it positive!
At the end of the day, judges scored this video highest for it’s careful scripting and production quality. Orlando Cordova represented Laughterhours Comedy and submitted this video and earned the number one spot!
Daniel Rios-Lopera created a kinetic and upbeat tour of Downtown El Paso with his video submission that won him 2nd place!
Ryan Ortegon left out a music track in favor of a more organic experience, letting the sounds of the Cobbler’s equipment and the bustling downtown noises provide the soundtrack for this intimate conversation with the Cobbler. As Authentico as they come, this video earned third place!
