Lenny Emery’s Film Qualifies for the Oscars!

November 1, 2013

I received an email from Lenny Emery yesterday.  In his brief note, Lenny updated me on the success of the short film he co-produced, Fool’s Day.  Lenny wrote, “Wanted to let you know that Fool’s Day has won 7 film festivals so far – as well as the Grand Jury Prize at the Austin International Film Festival which qualifies us for the Oscars.”

THE OSCARS!  Now that is impressive and exciting for this small-town boy who’s obviously making it in the Big City.
