Filming the Sounds of Silence

By Bruce Felps

The Video Association of Dallas wants to replace an old, almost classic pre-film public service announcement that encourages movie-goers to silence their cell phones.

The incumbent spot, a regular at the Angelika Film Center at Mockingbird Station, depicts an early 1900s opera singer disturbed by a ringing cell phone.

It’s been around for years, and the VAD plans a contest to anoint the PSA’s successor.

The contest is open now and the entry deadline comes up Aug. 26. The winning short will become the official no-cell-phone PSA of the Angelika, and the winning producer receives a year-round pass to any Angelika Film Center, plus the grateful eyes of many a movie-goer.

Contact the contest sponsors for the necessary entry forms and any additional information.
