Eric Clapp's the Fort Worth filmmaker who curates the Bobbie Wygant Archive, which has given us much to look at in recent months. But he's also the producer of director Coleman Anderson's short film 4 X 4 Camaro, the tale of a local father and son who, with the aid of "beer and tools," married a Chevy S-10 and a Camaro. Last night, the doc -- which garnered more than 1,000 look-sees following its posting to The Ticket's website last month -- took top prize in a shorts competition at the Texas Theatre. Which is plenty good reason to share it here.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
