Prospect Connecticut native Gary Ploski’s new film OBJECTS OF TIME, directed by Michael Trzaska, took top honors last month in the 48 Hour Film Project’s New Haven competition.

  OBJECTS OF TIME, created in just 48 hours by team Clear Lens, was awarded Best Film, Best Acting, Best Directing, Best Writing, Best Editing, Best Cinematography and also received the Audience Award. The short follows the character Matt Moreland as he struggles to find the truth of whether his time traveling abilities are real or just a figment of his imagination.

   Ploski, who played the lead in the time travel short, said about the win, “Wow! Well that just blew my mind. You know, the funny thing about this is that it may seem like this film only took 48 hours to make, and I was only on-set for about 12 hours, but for me it was a culmination of over 12 years of training and work. That said, this rocks! Whoohoo!”

   The film will go on to compete against the winners from other cities that participated in the 48 Hour Film Project at the Taos Shortz Film Fest in New Mexico in March 2012. In addition, ten films from the approximately 100 cities that competed will go on to be shown at Cannes Film Festival.

48 Hour Film Project
   The 48 Hour Film Project’s mission is to advance filmmaking and promote filmmakers. Through its festival/competition, the Project encourages filmmakers and would-be filmmakers to get out there and make movies. The tight deadline of 48 hours puts the focus squarely on the filmmakers—emphasizing creativity and teamwork skills. While the time limit places an unusual restriction on the filmmakers, it is also liberating by putting an emphasis on “doing” instead of “talking.” –
