  • Douglas Heil

    It was a great honor to win this award, and I was impressed by how flexible and accommodating the American Tracks team was. When I asked whether it was possible to post two links on their website — one to our film website and one to a website with the music, they instantly made the adjustment and offered their visitors access to both. I greatly appreciate the publicity and support and will be promoting this competition to other musicians and filmmakers.
