It is hard to walk this path, but "Best Film 2017" from Hell Chess Film Festival proved this is the route to take. Thanks for Mindfield, Pinnacle and Royal Wolf for giving me encouragement and support over the years. And thanks for Bare Bone festival for awarding me best produced documentary in 2020. It takes a lot for festival to award an unknown filmmaker top awards but 25th annual Indie Gathering gave 2 awards while 12th annual Socal Film Awards gave out 3 awards.

Thanks to my talented cast and crew. Thanks to the judges and viewers for liking our efforts. Filmmaking is magical, it took me to places I have never been before.
