    Deeply honored to be selected for my music video HERO, by the prestigious WENIFF West Nordic International Film Festival. Hopefully, if Covid19 allows next year I would like to fly down to experience your festival up close and personal. HERO - a tribute to all the frontline Healthcare Workers NYC neighboring states and across our entire globe who have made and who continue to make the ultimate sacrifice for US ❤ in the wake of the Covid-19 Variant. This essential worker (chef) proudly accepts this award on your behalf, know that i didn't forget you....
    On behalf of my myself and my entire cast and crew, thank you WENIFF West Nordic International Film Festival judges for seeing my vision of gratitude through my artistic eyes ... you are NY Tough! :-) look out for more of my best work to come...
    Best. Richard Oliver Jr.
