Michael Bina, my former writing student and current writing friend (we meet weekly to write together for two hours on our separate projects), recently won 2nd place for his entry in the Producers Guild of America’s “Make Your Mark” weekend shorts competition. Michael and his collaborator, Shawn Shekarchian, produced, wrote and directed this unbelievably poignant film in only 51 hours.

Congratulations, Michael and Shawn. You have a bright future ahead, my dears. This is a wonderful piece of filmmaking. Keep at it! The world needs you two to keep telling these important stories.
Here is their film:
