  • "La Petite Mort" won top honors at the 2012 Little Rock 48-Hour Film Project screening.

"La Petite Mort," a BrickHut production directed by Matt Owen, took the top honors for this year's Little Rock 48 Hour Film Project screenings, hosted Thursday night at Argenta Community Theater.

In addition to the overall best film, "La Petite Mort" took home the best music award and was nominated for best cinematography and best editing.

"It was hectic and crazy," Owen said of the filmmaking process.

The music — a combined effort by Connor McNabb, Vince Griffin and Ian Thomas — was certainly a tune to stick in the head. As was the film's story, which featured two singing psychopaths, Tammy and Tommy Shuttles, performed to an inattentive audience, which was collectively tortured and murdered as punishment.

The film will go on to be screened at next year's Filmapalooza with 48HFP winners from around the world.

Thursday night's audience of nearly 300 watched the 11 audience favorites, which were selected last week at screenings in which all 27 48HFP films were shown over three nights.
