San Diego-Based Developer of Computer Expansion Products Supports Independent Filmmakers
San Diego, Calif (PRWEB) November 04, 2013
Magma, a developer of computer expansion products for servers, desktops and portable platforms, is pleased to announce the winner of its Peoples Choice Award. Spencer Gillis, a New York-based independent filmmaker, received the award for his short film, GUN, which debuted earlier this month at the San Diego Film Festival.
Magma sponsored the San Diego Film Festival as part of the companys outreach program to show the potential of expansion computing solutions for creative professionals. To show support for the creative industry, it launched the Magma Peoples Choice Award and took votes via Twitter from people viewing the MindGames category. Gillis film received an overwhelming amount of votes and he was awarded a Magma Express Box 1T PCI Express chassis.
Our products help filmmakers with pre- and post-production editing, allowing them to harness the power of the latest video technology that doesnt always fit in a standard Mac or PC, says Victoria Kohlorst, Magma spokesperson. The San Diego Film Festival was the perfect venue to engage filmmakers who can benefit from our products.
Gillis film, GUN, follows a man as he struggles with the concept of owning a gun to protect his family. This character study explores the influence of power on the human mind and the dark tendencies that power can reveal. We see a glimpse of ourselves in Roys struggle and come away with a simple question, Are we really in control?
This is my first short film that has ever seen the light of day and winning this award for this project adds to the thrill of the whole thing, says Gillis. It took three days to shoot, but seven months of post production, so a lot of hard work and persistence went into this film.
