Maryland filmmaker wins “CadillacUnder5” film contest
Detroit, Michigan – The cast of the MGM film “Be Cool”, including John Travolta, Christina Milian and Cedric the Entertainer selected Jeff Schmale as winner of the CadillacUnder5 film contest.
Schmale, of Bel Air, Maryland, receives a new Cadillac CTS-V for his efforts.
The promotion called for aspiring filmmakers to submit a five-second film, playing off the Cadillac V-Series’ acceleration rate of zero to 100 km/hr in under five seconds. More than 2,600 films were submitted. One of them, by Ohio resident Devin Doyle, was selected at random and played as part of a Cadillac commercial during this year’s Academy Awards ceremony.
