Local Movie Maker Merits Award at Film and Video Competition
It's always nice to see a local budding movie maker win an award in his area of fan devotion. Barry Worthington recently received an award of merit for artistic and technical expertise from Accolade, a film, television, new media and videography competition based in San Diego. Worthington is a native of Gaithersburg, MD, which is right in my figurative backyard; the award he won was for River Haven, a 15 minute science fiction/horror short.
Worthington's other short films include Funkalicious and Advanced. (Covingway Enterprises, the fictitious company which appears in River Haven, also plays a role in Advanced; I suppose Covingway is the Weyland-Yutani Corporation of the Advanced/River Haven universe.) Worthington and his company Limitless Films are currently working on Kin, a crime drama.
