As stay at home orders lift across the nation, Todd Mitchell begins to take matters into his own hands, in the form of his own Four Phase Plan.

The Making Of "Capsule"

What a night! Super honored to win Best Costume, Best Writing, Best Pro Film, and Best of Fest for our sci-fi film, CAPSULE. Our team knocked it out of the park this year and we are overjoyed to receive these awards as recognition of our shared ambition, vision, teamwork, talent, and fun!!

72 Film Fest

72 Film Fest

Thanks to every team that participated this year. It was a crazy fun, dark, silly, touching and surprising bunch of films, and we hope you had an amazing time both making the films and sharing them with fellow screen artists! But the fun is just beginning as tomorrow we screen finalists, award winners, sketches with your hosts, and some surprises…with an after party at Cacique to close out the contest.

Congrats to the finalists and Audience Choice for Friday Night SRK and AGING EAGLES, who will move on to Saturday Night as well!

Also to those asking about the 10 Year Retrospectives that we added this year, we included only teams that have done the Fest for 10 Years under the same name which was five teams, three of which shown on Friday. As teams cross the ten year threshold (there's quite a few super close), we'll celebrate! Thanks to Falling Squares for putting those together.

10/12/2019

We officially made it to the 72 Fest finals! Star Wipe will be screening as part of the Awards Night showcase. Come and join us (and vote for us for audience favorite!). The fun starts at 7pm!

Mission accomplished! Our 72 Film Fest project is finished and submitted. Turning in our film in person was much easier this year, as we developed, produced, and completed our film from the new DUO Media Productions Office, just a couple blocks from the drop-off at Area 31. We are tired – as always after a film race – but extremely happy with our finished film: CAPSULE. We can't wait to share it next weekend at the 72 Film Fest screening, 10/11 (and hopefully 10/12) at the Weinberg Center for the Arts. Hope to see you there!!!

“Hey, Star Wipe is here!”

With 10+ years of enthusiasm, 15+ completed films, award-winning talent, and a screening at the Festival de Cannes, Star Wipe Films is an accomplished, close-knit team, producing high-quality and engaging films.

Since Star Wipe began in 2003, we have crafted an extensive film collection, won countless awards and honors from TIVA-DC, the 48 Hour Film Project (DC and Baltimore), the Telly Awards, the 29 Days Later Film Project, and more.

Our films have screened and earned trophies at film festivals across the US and internationally, including CIMM Fest, Clean Shorts, West Chester, Monmouth, StoneFair International Film Festival, Boomtown, Love Your Shorts, Wasteland, Sacramento Film & Music Festival, Desert Rocks Film and Music Event, and the Jerome Film & Music Festival, where we premiered our short film Apocalypse Rock. One of our biggest honors was landing a spot at the Cannes International Film Festival Short Film Corner for our film, Welcome to the Neighborhood.

We love filmmaking on both scales; larger, independent projects and participating in our local film competitions. We’ve celebrated repeated successes with Frederick, Maryland’s 72 Film Fest, from which we took home awards for Best Professional Film and Best Cinematography in 2017, Best Acting in 2018, and Best Costume, Writing, Pro, and Best of Fest in 2019.

Star Wipe Films represents the entertainment division of DUO Media Productions. We’ve developed a reputation as one of the teams to beat in the area, and many come to the screenings just to see our films. We love to hear, “Hey, Star Wipe is here!”
