The Wasserman Awards Finalists and Craft Awards for NYU's First Run Festival were announced yesterday. I was fortunate enough to win two Craft Awards for Sound Design for a graduate film, Hasim October, by Swetha Regunathan, and for an undergraduate film, Alientologists, by Tyler Rabinowitz. The latter film was a Wasserman finalist and could win up to $10,000 when the winners are announced in March. Cheers!
