Film racing tour puts movie in fast forward

A crew of over-caffeinated students and recent grads put a film to bed in 24 hours

At exactly 8 p.m., Dusty Peterson, the crew's grip, takes off for Minneapolis's Bryant-Lake Bowl, the drop-off point. He gets there 30 minutes before the 10 p.m. deadline.

Five days later, "Deadline" and 27 other Film Racing shorts are up for a one-time showing at the East Bank's Oak Street Cinema. Last week, the crew got the news that "Deadline" wasn't one of the finalists for the national competition, but they're not discouraged.

"To see your work played on a big screen is its own reward," Sirbasku says. "That's what we all live for."
