Ahwatukee resident Alex Thomas recently won an award at the 2013 Rocky Mountain Emmys for his short film, “The Mutable Life of Oscar Clark.”
The film was a final student project at Northern Arizona University last May and garnered Thomas the audience choice award at NAU with over 80 percent of the audience votes. It will be shown next spring in the Sedona Film Festival. Thomas co-wrote, directed, produced and wrote the original musical score for the film.
“The Mutable Life of Oscar Clark” is an adventure-packed short film about a character that finds out his life is a movie. Kathryn is a screenwriter who wrote a love story, but when two script doctors are hired to turn her story into a murder mystery, things spin out of control.
The three writers inject themselves into the story in order to gain control of the main character, Oscar Clark. Kathryn tries to rescue him and return him to his wife, Olivia, while the script doctors try to convince him that he murdered her. Alex is currently working on a variety of projects as a composer and plans to move to the Los Angeles area later this year.
The film will also be entered into the National College Television Awards while also making its run in film festivals early next year.
