The 2013 MTV Movie Awards took place a little over a week ago on April 14.
Rebel Wilson hosted the show and Bradley Cooper won Best Male Performance.
Meanwhile, 18-year-old Joaquin Palma won the Chevrolet and MTV “First Look” Contest that turned his short film idea into a reality as it aired on the big screen at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards pre-show.
On a quest for the next generation of filmmakers, Chevrolet and MTV challenged aspiring directors, screenwriters, actors and producers to film their ways to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards by finding inspiration in the Chevrolet Sonic to craft “the most innovative story about daring souls who never settle for yesterday, possess a can do spirit and remind us that ‘ingenuity can do the impossible.’”
The winner would receive roundtrip airfare and hotel accommodations to MTV’s Sneak Peek Week and the 2013 MTV Movie Awards for two to co-produce and view the short film at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards pre-show.
“Never Let You Go,” created by the Bronx New York native, brought Palma to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
And this is what he had to say:
When I read over the contest page, it asked for a character with a can-do spirit who never settles for less. My character is pretty much like that. He’s a scientist that uses innovative and genius ways to save the woman he loves. So he’s essentially finding a new road to saving her, and I thought that just tied in beautifully. I had the ideas beforehand, but I didn’t really know what way to tie them together, so the concept of Find New Roads really helped.
Tom Naquin of Elkhart Indiana enjoyed the finished product.
