“Hooker and the Transvestite” wins Filmaka contest!

“The Hooker and the Transvestite”, (La Puta y la Travesti) a short film made with almost no-budget in 5 days by San Telmo Productions, has just been named winner of the “Hard Times” contest hosted by filmaka.com

It was voted one of 18 finalists by the filmaka community. Now directors Ginger Gentile and Gabriel Balanovsky have less than one month and a prize of $1000 dollars to film the sequel, using the same characters and theme.

This second short film will be viewed by a jury made up of some of the biggest movers and shakers in the film industry: Wim Wenders, Werner Herzog, as well as the producer of Che, Laura Bickford, and actor Colin Firth. If chosen as a winner, in addition to cash prizes, the team will enter into negotiations to turn this idea into a web series and compete for feature-length film funding.

Right now San Telmo Productions is building a dream team of Argentine Film technicians to create the best short possible, with a production quality worthy of Hollywood. Our second film will keep telling the story of these two characters, the hooker and the transvestite, who try to find work in order to eat, but keeping comedic tone!
