  • TEAM ARKANSAS TIMES: 'Fortuneate.'

A team sponsored by the Arkansas Times was a big winner in the Little Rock leg of this years' 48 Hour Film Project, a competition in which teams from cities all over the world write, shoot, edit and score a film over the course of one weekend.

Team Arkansas Times' film “Fortunate,” about the eccentric genius who writes the majority of the world's fortune cookie fortunes, won the Audience Choice Award and Best Film of the Festival. In addition, lead actor Bob Hulsey won for Best Male Actor, while Paige Reynolds, who also starred, won in a tie for Best Female Actor with Jenifer Hamel of Team Argenta for their film “Barola de Argenta.” “Homing” by iiwii and “Evie” by Amalgamated Motion Pictures were runners up for Best Film of the festival.

If you look closely, too, you'll notice one recently famous face in the cast of “Fortunate.” Katy Allen, wife of Kris, plays a nun.

Look for “Fortunate” and other 48 Hour Film Project films on the Times' video player in the coming days.
