While I’m deep in post production with Baggage, I’ve been lucky enough to have Survive. Recover. Live. receive a number of accolades as of late. A few weeks ago I was the recipient of the Sergeant William Genaust Award for documentary film by the Marine Corps. Heritage Association. I was honored to receive the award, whose namesake was the combat cinematographer who filmed the flag raising at Iwo Jima. It was a special night at an amazing venue–I was humbled to be amongst such incredible company. You can see my ugly mug accepting the award below.
And, if that bit of excitement wasn’t enough. Survive. Recover. Live., will be showing at the GI Film Festival in Washington, DC. If you’re local and feel like supporting a great festival, please come and check it out. For the price of a single ticket, you get to see a slew of other great movies as well. My film will be playing on Saturday, May 19th, at 10:00am at the Naval Heritage Center in Northwest, Washington, DC. Entry fee is $12.00 for the shorts block, which contains screenings of seven additional films. Quite a steal if I do say so myself.
For all the pertinent information, head here. At the very least, it will give you something to do while you patiently wait for more Baggage updates.
