The students from Ballard High’s filmmaking program have walked away with six awards from last weekend’s Northwest Emmy Awards.
Matt Lawrence, who leads the filmmaking program, tells My Ballard that BHS students led the pack of winners for the fifth year in a row, winning five of the six categories in which they had been nominated.
The award for Best Music Video went to More Than I Said, by Grace Stromatt, Freeman Marshall, and Elliott Russell.
Best Animation/Graphics/Visual Effects went to Ethan Hawthorne-Dallas for Time Cop: First Blood.
The Student Production Awards, presented by the Northwest Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS), included student works from five Northwest states: Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Alaska.
To see the students’ films in person, there will be a Ballard Film Festival coming up this weekend — Saturday, June 15th at the BHS Auditorium. Tickets are $5 for students and $10 for adults, with all proceeds benefitting the film program.
