Got some good news today. Back in September, my team, The Sessioneers, had a scant 48 hours to write, film, edit, and deliver a film with three prompts in it - a line of dialogue, a prop, and a character as part of a filmmaking competition. We were up against some great films, and they all screened October 7th. Today I got word that our film, "My Mother Met Someone Who Saw the Ocean" won the following awards:
- Best Graphics
- Best Musical Score (to my wife Sarah)
- Best Sound Design
- Best Directing (to Rj Buckler - that's me)
- Best Film
The whole team is very delighted, honored and surprised. The other entries were so amazing we couldn't believe that we had won.
My Mother Met Someone Who Saw the Ocean will play against other city finalists at Filmapalooza in 2015 in L.A., and from there the top 3 will go to Cannes. Great work, everyone!
