Nawthwest Bounty Hunters – Comedy Short Film


Nawthwest Bounty Hunters was created, script-to-screen, in one weekend for the 48-Hour Film Project in July, 2017. Bill Johns, star of the film, won the award for “Best Actor in a Comedy.” Nawthwest Bounty Hunters is also circulating in other film festivals. It was screened in the Playa Vista Film Festival in September 2017, and also selected for the online film festival, Frostbite.

For the contest, we were randomly assigned these elements, which had to be in the film:

  • Genre: Mockumentary + Action Adventure
  • Character: Anders or Andrea Sandstrom, Tour Guide
  • Prop: Hairbrush
  • Line of dialogue: “You should get that looked at.”

We had a pretty good time coming up with something that fit the bill in 48 hours!  Our cast was amazing and brought the film to life.
