"Bittersweet" Wins at the Northwest Regional Emmys!

At the Northwest Regional Emmy Awards, Bittersweet received an Award For Excellence in Writing from the National Student Television Awards.

It was an amazing night as I got the chance to see Devan, Becca, and Coburn for the first time in a year as we got our pictures taken on the red carpet and rubbed elbows with members of Seattle's news media. And nothing quite beats that engraved logo that reads "The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences".  Very cool!

"Bittersweet" and "Soccer Dads" at Westport Youth Film Festival!

Bittersweet, thanks to the hard work of co-producer Coburn, was an Official Selection at the Westport Youth Film Festival, along with another one of our films, the lighthearted documentary Soccer Dads. Our two shorts were among six films by Ballard High School students that were made Official Selections.
