Last night I was honoured to present the Live Action category award at the ADAA. I was stepping in for The Perlorian Brothers, who were unable to attend as they are shooting in Europe. Students from 24 countries submitted nearly 1,500 entries and all the work was so amazing. It truly was an inspirational evening. Look at the finalist’s & winner’s work & watch the judges in action. Thank you Lucky & Laszlo Perlorian for allowing me to be there on your behalf.
