    Couldn't be more honored to have our animated music video selected to the 2020 festival! Although we were not able to attend in person, it looks like they put together a great crowd. Excellent communication throughout and you can tell they really care about the arts. Kevin, we're still coming for our Sasquatch Award! :)
