Academy Awards History
This is the first Academy Award nomination for Shawn Christensen.
A big thank you to the Academy for supporting short films. This has been wonderful and I only have T-minus 2 seconds to do this so I’m just going to go for it. My producer in crime, Damon Russell, I love you man, we would not be here without you, brother. My co-star, 12-year-old co-star, Fatima Ptacek, her performance was so incredible. Nobody even remembers I’m in the film because of you, you are incredible. Mara Kassin, Andrew Napier, thank you so much. The incredible cinematography from Daniel Katz and putting together that wonderful crew, thank you so much. All of our friends, family, crew in New York and in France. Ouat Media, Caliber Media, Verve Talent, my beautiful mother, my devilishly handsome father, and the center of my universe, my dearest Nina. Thank you. I love you all.
