We just returned from New Orleans, LA where we spent a week learning from amazing event filmmakers from all over the world. In[Focus] is an annual conference ... well, more of a gathering ... where we all come together to grow, learn, be challenge and inspired. The mission is to "pay it forward." Not only do the speakers pay it forward by sharing knowledge, but so do all of the attendees. This year was amazing!!
The Lucent Awards were also held last week. The Lucent Awards celebrate the spirit of independent storytelling. We were extremely humbled and honored to receive "Best Directed Feature" for The Lunsford Family's Day In The Life! This film is so dear to our hearts. There are so many talented filmmakers in our industry. It was an honor to be a finalist with them. We are overwhelmed by all the kind words of our peers!
Here are a couple of snapshots from the night ..
We are so lucky and grateful the Lunsford family invited us into their lives and trusted us to tell their story. This family is so beautiful and strong! One afternoon with them and you want to be part of their family. Take time to get to know them ...
Thank you to the Lunsford family for trusting us! Thank you to Ashley Warren for bringing them into our life! And thank you to our industry for recognizing this film!
