Today marked my first public accolade in the filmmaking world as well as a union of great potential as The Luminaries’ music video entitled: “PEACE” was honored with the Elevate Film Festival’s Best Editing Award.

The festival is the world’s largest single-screen film festival and challenges filmmakers to produce, shoot, post and deliver a completed film project in just 7 days, while each film’s premise is devoted to subject matter which is enlightening and beneficial to the planet and mankind.  The festival is executive produced by Daryll Merchant and Mikki Willis of Elevate Films.  The Luminaries’ “PEACE” video was Directed by Justin Thomas Ostensen, photographed by Director of Photography Gabriel J. Lewis and Produced by Aaron Krinsky and Marc Salomon.
