Another year and all of the teams have turned in their contributions to Project Hot Potato.
Each year, four Hampton Roads filmmakers are tasked with producing four different segments of the same movie. One of the hurdles that is placed in their way is a simple rule that states that “no member of the crew or cast can appear on more than one team.” This leads to filmmakers either being lucky to run with their usual team or putting them in a position where they need to reach out an collaborate with creatives that they might not have previously.
On Saturday, April 25th– we will crown a winner for Project Hot Potato 2015, but there will also be another award winner: Project Hot Potato’s Most Valuable Actor.
And the nominees are…
Michael Beckner Jr. | Friendly Runaways
Michael has earned an MVA nomination his first year with Project Hot Potato as a member of the Friendly Runaways.
Vera Yatsula | Cocaine Beard
Last year, Vera became the first winner of the MVA award. Paired with her Issues co start and creator, she has earned a second nomination for Project Hot Potato’s Most Valuable Actor.
