Backyard: March 2014 Newsletter
Just one thing first...
I'm going to share news and happenings in chronological order, save for this one bit, which is too exciting to hold off on:
Backyard has been nominated for a Student Emmy! Yowza! I couldn't be happier...So much work over the last few years, so much courage on the part of my subjects, the support of my MSU professors and fellow filmmakers, and the help of my Kickstarter backers, all being recognized by THE Academy. And not that I needed to have the film validated by some outside entity, but this certainly won't hurt in terms of bringing more exposure to the issue. Plus, the award ceremony is in L.A., which has quickly become a center of the fracking battle, so it'll be pretty amazing having it recognized in such a supportive and tuned-in locale.
