Maikaru’s Big SIFF Win!

Maikaru took home the award for Best Documentary Short at the 2014 Seattle International Film Festival. SIFF is one of only 34 film festivals in the world where, if you win a juried prize for short films, your work is considered to be Oscar eligible.

Maikaru, Writer & Director Amanda Harryman, Co-Producer Luke Ware, and I had a blast at the Golden Space Needle Awards Brunch on Sunday 6/8. There we picked up our very stylish award and had a lot of fun taking a selfie with it in front of the repeatable.

After the awards we had a production meeting on top of the needle overlooking our city. Notice how I am trying to play it cool since I am a local and not looking at the gorgeous view of my city.

Maikaru is Oscar Eligible!

On Monday May 26th Maikaru won the award for Best Documentary Short at the Oscar-qualifying Seattle International Film Festival.

My Student Wins!

Congratulations to my student Kateah Nims! Today she became the first Arts and Academics Academy student to win an award at the Northwest High School Film Festival!

Maikaru, my latest producing and editing effort, will be making its US premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival on May 23rd. I will be attending the screening as well as several crew members and Maikaru himself.

Maikaru made its international debut at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Film Festival on the 1st of May. There the film won the award for Best Director and was the runner up for Best Film as a part of the 2014 International Documentary Challenge competition.
