The first place winner of the 24-Hour Video Race’s Futurevision (College) Division provides a lovely little reminder to recycle. By using a rather repulsive privileged couple and a kind, recycling homeless man, the short film shows what a profound difference the small act of recycling can make.

Each entry into the 24 Hour Video Race must include these four elements:

Theme: Recycling

Prop: Phone Book

Location: B_G … You can use any of the B_G locations all over Dallas. View locations

Line of Dialogue: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

Imagine a world where hospitals are obsolete. It’s a little difficult, right? The concept is a bit of a stretch, but the third place winners of the 24 Hour Video Race’s Pixelvision (High School) Division did a great job of capturing the strange unknown of the future, and the changes that could come if everyone made recycling a priority.

24 Hour Video Race Results: “Cycle, Recycle” Takes Home First Place in Pixelation Division

“The worst mistake in life is becoming stagnant.”

Spoken by one of the characters in Chase Anderson’s short film, “Cycle, Recycle”, the words perfectly capture the heart of the story. Life, in particular relationships, are filled with highs and lows, heartwarming triumphs and crushing defeats. Even when the blows are almost too much to take, the worst thing you can do is remain stagnant and resist change. Some relationships are meant to last, some require a little give and take, and some end up being just one more “Alyssa” of “Jessica” (or the occasional “Giselle”) on your path to finding the one. It’s all part of the process, the ebb and flow of life.

“Cycle, Recycle”, directed by Chase Anderson, took home first place in the 2013 24 Hour Video Race’s Pixelvision (High School) Division.
