"Frozen River"
Awarded to one of the 16 U.S. films in the Dramatic Competition, the 2008 Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic went to Courtney Hunt’s Frozen River. The film tells the story of a desperate trailer mom and a Mohawk woman who team up to smuggle illegal immigrants into the United States from Canada. Accepting the award, Hunt said, “Thanks to Sundance Institute because without these programmers, this film could easily have been lost....I believe in a universe of abundance and I believe that every filmmaker here will find their perfect audience.”

This is the second Sundance Winner to be screened in the Forman Room

"Frozen River" gets 2 Oscar Nominations!
It was screened in the Forman Screening room where Mark Forman made technical suggestions on selected scenes before it won Sundance last year.
Nominations are Best Actress and Best Original Screenplay

A 1080P version of the Chelsea Night Walk done with the New Canon 5D Mark II

On 12-01- 2008 Mark Forman Productions took delivery of a Canon 5D Mark II digital still and full 1080P HD video camera.
One aspect of the camera is it's low light capability as compared to previous generation CMOS sensors and of course the new ability to record 1080P HD H.264 moving images.

This Camera was used to shoot an establishing shot for "Notorious " a Hollywood feature film only 3 days after receiving it ! Mark Forman Productions was the first place ever to use the Canon 5D Mark II for a major feature film.
