It seems like crime truly does pay, as the film “Counterfeiters,” directed by Bryce Hirschberg (‘12) and produced by Catherine Wolf (‘12) (pictured bottom right), took the Best Picture prize at the Film Outside the Frame awards ceremony held at Paramount Studios on Saturday. The film tells the story of college dropouts who concoct a plan to create counterfeit money, but run into problems when greed begins to take hold. “Reclamation,” directed by David Lehleitner (’12), won the most awards at the ceremony, picking up six in total. The film, which follows a man searching for his niece in the middle of a post-apocalyptic wasteland, won the Student Choice Award, Best Director (for Lehleitner), Best Live Action, Best Cinematography (for Director of Photography Adam Lee, ‘12), Best Production Design (for Production Designer Kate Rhamey, ‘12) and Best Sound Design (for Sound Designer Eric Wegener, ‘12). In attendance at the event to receive the Distinguished Alumni Award was David Mirkin (‘78), whose credits include writing, producing and directing “The Simpsons” and directing films such as “Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion” and “Heartbreakers.” Other notable winners include junior film production major Luc Delamare, who was awarded the Cub Award for his film “Face to Face,” senior film production major Jessica Nicholas, who earned the Silver Lion Award for her film “Heavy,” and Aaron Gervich (‘12), who received the Golden Lion Award for his film “The Death of Dr. Seuss.” For a full list of all the winners and nominees, scroll down.
