WINNER - 48 Hour Film Festival

In a totally unexpected, but utterly exciting move, I'm super excited to announce that my production company "ForeSee Film Productions" has WON the New York City 48 Hour Film Competition!

The 48 Hour Film Project ( is a competition in which teams write, direct, produce, and edit and 4-7 minute short film in only 48 hours.  Each film has a specific set of necessary elements in order to ensure that it was created during the specified time allotment.

My team was given the genre of "thriller" and we created a film called "And Many More...?" which ended up winning Best Director (Erin Harland), Best Writing (Erin Harland & Joshua Michael Payne), Best Actress (Molly Collier), and Best Sound Design (Joshua Michael Payne) as well as BEST OF NY!

From here, the film will go on to the national level at Filmapalooza sometime in 2019.
