Several of Shreveport-Bossier City’s most talented local filmmakers will compete in the nationwide Insomnia 24 Hour Film Festival this Sat, Oct 13. The filmmakers are required to write, shoot and edit a film within the 24-hour timeline, says Chris Lyon.

One Shreveport-based team will be filmmakers Chris Lyon, Luke Lee, Keith Shively and Daniel Lachman. They recently produced the well-reviewed film Plummet (, which debuted in Shreveport on July 20. The same team placed 8th of almost 300 entries in last year's festival, says Lyon.

Due to the nature of the festival, the filmmakers cannot write the script until the contest begins. This means that a cast cannot be chosen until that day. The filmmakers are looking for talent who would like to be included on a standby list for Sat, Oct 13. Once the script is written, the filmmakers will chose a cast based on the look of each character that they wish to be portrayed as well as the actor's credentials.

Actors and actresses that wish to be a part of this film festival should submit their résumés and head shots to Perennial Media by emailing

Screen credit only.
