With the rush of thesis over comes the next step in the student film process -- the Festival circuit. Recently, I received word that Prism has begun to make its rounds, and has been accepted into the Screen Actors Guild Foundation LA Shorts Showcase, the Prescott Film Festival (going on now), and the HollyShorts Film Festival. The film has also caught the attention of the Academy and is now a Semifinalist for the Student Academy Awards. It's been quite surreal and exciting to see the response and watch the film take off. I am extremely proud of the team and am thrilled to see what these next months hold.
