HI ALUMNI ARE KILLING IT ON THE OSCARS SHORTLIST – AGAIN!

Posted on:

Once again, Human Interest Films’ colleagues and friends are well-represented on this  year’s short list for the Best Documentary Oscar.  Bravo to alumni Caroline Waterlow and Tamara Rosenberg for their outstanding work on the documentary series O.J.: Made in America which is racking up tons of well-deserved awards.  We are also thrilled for our mentor and spiritual guru Molly Thompson, executive producer of Life, Animated and for Owen Suskind and his dad Ron, the subjects of Life, Animated, whom we first got to know several years ago when we documented their story for Night of Too Many Stars: An Overbooked Concert for Autism Education.   Earlier this year, colleagues Maritte Go and Brian Golden Davis crushed it at Sundance and Slamdance.  Congratulations all around!  Couldn’t be prouder of our talented team!
