Mike Potter is the winner of the Cellflix Film festival with his 30-second cell phone movie entitled "Cheat."
Potter beat out 178 contestants between the ages of 13 and 20 who submitted 30-second movies shot entirely on their cell phones. The Cellflix Film festival is hosted by Ithaca College.
Potter, a student at Ithaca, was inspired to make the film while watching his grandparents at dinner.
"I saw something in their interactions, how much fun they have together, that was so powerful that I knew it would jump out in something as quick as a 30-second piece," Potter wrote in his entry form.
Potter received the grand prize of $5,000.
