We are so humbled to announce that we took home 5 Addy awards this year from the AAF Baltimore - AAFB. But the one we're most proud of is the Mosaic Award for our work with Healthcare for the Homeless. We work really hard as a team to focus on stories and partnerships that give power to the voices that need it most and the Mosaic Award honors companies and individuals who embody the Mosaic Principles—an action-oriented roadmap to create a more inclusive industry. Mosaic Award recipients display their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion through creative work, advocacy, and company-wide initiatives.
Of course, we did very little. Healthcare for the Homeless and Qyashiny Robinson are the ones who deserve this honor the most. HFTH is doing incredible and necessary work in Baltimore and Qyashiny, the subject of our film, is a true inspiration. Thank you so much.

We also won 4 other awards that we're very proud of including 2 Golds and 2 Silvers for our film with RevZilla and We Went Fast "Little Giant" as well as a film about the COVID fight with the Charles County Health Dept called "A County Against COVID."

All of these were big team efforts but want to send a little extra love to our awesome editor Rebecca McCutcheon for winning the Silver Award for editing "Little Giant."

The Gold awards now move on to Regional and national competitions. Congrats to all the other winners and nominees for doing great work in our esteemed city.

We got some really nice client reviews from our work in 2021. Onward to the future!

Little Giant: The PW50 Story | Early Light Media

https://earlylightmedia.com/little-giant-the-pw50-story/

Our latest film collaboration “Little Giant: The PW50 Story” is now available for free streaming on RevZilla’s YouTube channel.

The film follows journalist Brett Smith as he shares his love of motorcycling with his daughter by rebuilding his original 1981 PW50 and teaching her to ride it.

For the last 4 decades, the Yamaha PW50 has been a legend in the backyards of future motocross champions, Dakar winners, and backwoods warriors alike. Ricky Carmichael, Ryan Villopoto, Becca Sheets, Cory Texter, and Cooper Webb share how the fabled PW50 helped to shape their careers and the world of motorcycling. Chances are, you or someone you know were amongst the millions who had a PW50 spark their passion for two wheels.

It was a pleasure to work with Brett, Revzilla and our team to bring this project to life.

"Brothers for Life" (Explicit) Featuring Will Smith & RAW Tuba, Richard Antoine White (Music Video)

Just in time for your Friday night party! Finally, you can just listen to this song "Brothers for Life" that we recorded with Richard Antoine White and his brother William Smith. Fun fact, we filmed the scene of these guys recording a song together for the documentary RAW Tuba and Will freestyled this entire version in one take! And we know he didn't write it beforehand because right before we recorded we gave him some topics and he just spit it out like a master. Time for Baltimore to get bumpin' (Ear muffs if you have little ones around. It's explicit.)

This week we had the pleasure of working with Early Light Media to create a promo video for Tutoring with the Lightning Squad. It was great working with the team. We would also like to thank Graceland Park/O' Donnell Heights Elementary Middle Community School #240's principal, teachers, and students for participating in the video. It was awesome to hear how amazing the tutoring program is doing at the school. Thank you to everyone who participated. We are excited to share the video.

Some helpful advice from our friends at Early Light Media.
Congratulations to the winners of the 8th Annual Social Impact Media Awards ()!

“Our SIMA 2020 winning films are the antidote to apathy. They give us no choice, no option to look away, no alternative then to see our own role in creating a more just and equitable world. The journeys they take us on are so raw and intimate, complex and beautiful—they skillfully lift the veil on our own complacency and inspire to such heights that only action can follow. This is global impact cinema at its finest and should be mandatory viewing for all.” — Daniela Kon, SIMA Founder & Executive Director

Short Doc R.A.W. TUBA by Darren Durlach and Dave Larson Early Light Media

R.A.W. TUBA is the story of a Baltimore child who experienced intermittent homelessness but went on to become a world-class symphony musician and professor.

As a child, Richard Antoine White (R.A.W.) slept wherever he could, sometimes in abandoned row homes where he was chewed on by rats during his sleep. Now in his 40s, he still has the scars across his abdomen. But despite enormous challenges, he went on to become the first African American in the world to receive a Doctorate in Music for Tuba Performance.
Congratulations Finalists!

“We are witnessing extraordinary times. Communities are coming together like never before to take a collective stance against injustice, against the exploitation of our planet, against the way the crimes of history of discrimination and oppression have gone unpunished with no lessons learned. SIMA 2020 filmmakers are directing their lenses courageously towards those that are saying “enough!’ We are honored to amplify these vital voices.” - Daniela Kon, SIMA Founder and Executive

Stories from 34 countries move onto the final round of the 8th annual Social Impact Media Awards.
