Filmmaker Danielle Orbach’s “Seamless Love“ Audience Awards Winner First Place $300
“The Audience Awards is a valuable platform for aspiring filmmakers like myself to be able to share our work with one another and the public. The audience plays a big part in entertainment; you need to find that balance between sharing the story you want to share, but also telling a story that audiences will enjoy. The Audience Awards creates an interactive environment between the films and its audience that allows you to instantly see what works and what doesn’t. I am honored to have had Seamless Love be a part of it.” ~Danielle Orbach,
Filmmaker Richard Mone’s “Pointless” Audience Awards Winner Second Place $150
“I’m really excited to have placed in my second straight contest through this wonderful site! What are my thoughts? Well, the value of contests like these is truly never-ending. The best part is getting to see that more than just my friends and family are voting for and viewing the films I submit. Looking in the “Audience” section of the website and seeing people I’ve never met before having voted for my film (and possibly even viewed it) makes me appreciate more the work I can create, and, help me understand that my audience that I thought I was creating for is even larger than expected. I know that these same people will want more, and through contests and platforms such as the ones I’ve participated in, I can continue to get the word out about myself and the actors, actresses, and other talented individuals I work with. The main goal I have when I make films such as Pointless is to entertain people. Even if those people at first are just my mom, my sister, and a few friends, I know that they will tell their friends and they in turn will tell their friends. Contests I find through The Audience Awards allows that process to expand exponentially, with 100 people viewing my films, then they in turn tell their friends. It can only go up from here!” ~Richard Mone
