“I like how it’s an evolving process and how the visions changes during script writing and production and that changes during editing to get the best version of what it can become,” he said.

“It came as a surprise to finish first in the state. I was always warned film was a medium that wouldn’t please academics. But it seems they do value film as much as essays, poetry and creative writing.”
