Judge's comments, "Without Borders/Sin Fronteras":
"Opening segment captures the viewers attention immediately and draws you into a very creatively shot interview."
Judge's comments, "Zorthian Ranch":
"Zorthian Ranch is a well told documentary describing the ranch, work and life
of the artist Jirayr Zorthian. The story opens with a good title sequence which captures
the attention of the viewer. The storyline is attention-grabbing as it tells the history of the
artist and why the ranch exists. The cinematography is stimulating, using moving
camera shots and there is a good mixture of legacy footage with new footage. A good
blend of natural sound and music is used to set the tempo of the story. The interviews
are creatively captured using nonstandard framing. The piece has a good closing which
wraps up the tale and nicely compliments the opening sequence. This is a well done
short documentary which incorporates a wide variety of cinematic and storytelling
