"Winning an award for this trailer meant a lot to me as this story is very close to my heart...there is no better feeling than being recognized by one's own school for excellence in his or her field of study.  To have earned this honor is something I will cherish for a long time."

-Zachary Obid, winner for Best Movie Trailer

The narrative and documentary film categories this year were swept by the team of Ryan Rivard (R) and Jon O'Sullivan (L), who also took home awards for Distinguised Service.  Their film The Arsonist's Affair and documentary Living the Falcon won in every catagory in which they were entered.  What a night for these two fine young filmmakers!  Of course, they had help from some excellent actors and a particularly dedicated sound recordist.  Click on the images below to see why their films were so successful.
