“Kalei,” 72 Fest (2021)

Since 2003, Star Wipe has crafted an extensive film collection, won countless awards and honors from the 48 Hour Film Project (DC and Baltimore), the 72 Film Fest, TIVA-DC, the Telly Awards, the 29 Days Later Film Project, and more.

Our films have screened and earned trophies at film festivals across the US and internationally, including CIMM FestClean Shorts, West Chester, Monmouth, StoneFair International Film Festival, Boomtown, Love Your Shorts, Wasteland, Sacramento Film & Music Festival, Desert Rocks Film and Music Event, and the Jerome Film & Music Festival, where we premiered our independent short film Apocalypse Rock. One of our biggest honors was landing  a spot at the Cannes International Film Festival Short Film Corner for our film, Welcome to the Neighborhood.

We love filmmaking on both scales; larger, independent projects and participating in our local film competitions.  We’ve celebrated consistent success in Frederick, Maryland’s 72 Film Fest, from which we took home awards for Best Editing in 2021 (Kalei), Best Cinematography in 2020 (Containment) and 2017 (Sophia), Best Costume, Writing, Pro, and Best of Fest in 2019 (Capsule), and Best Acting in 2018 (Free Climb).

We continue our involvement with The Black Hills Night Hike, a horror film anthology project centered on Maryland-based myths, Star Wipe Films represents the entertainment division of DUO Media Productions, and we can’t wait to tackle new creative endeavors in the future!
