Lucent Awards Finalist ~ Best Wedding Feature ~ Lauren + Joel
In January I had the amazing opportunity to go to In Focus, a conference especially tailored to filmmakers like myself. It's full of inspiration, creativity and knowledge. This is the second year I have attended and it just keeps getting better. Most importantly it recharges my batteries and gets me ready to take on another year of filmmaking. One of the highlights was that Joel + Lauren's film was a finalist in this year's Lucent Awards. You know that saying, "It's an honor to be nominated.." It really was!
The company that actually won is one that I have admired for years: Pen Weddings. Seriously, check them out. There's something so amazing and polished about their work. Sarah is one of the best editors out there. Since editing is really my favorite part of the process I can really appreciate it when it's done well.
This is what I strive for everyday and this is one of the best parts of the job: Always room to grow, always something new to learn. In Focus just makes me push to be better. At the end of the day, my client's satisfaction is all that matters but it's icing on the wedding cake being recognized by your peers. Can't wait for next year.
