“Stag and Doe” Wins the HBO Short Film Award at the 2010 American Black Film Festival

June 28, 2010

Proud to see that NYU was representin’ heavily at this year’s American Black Film Festival in Miami, but I was especially pleased to have learned that “Stag and Doe,” directed by Justin Staley and Daniel Patterson, a short film that I was fortunate enough to be able to work on, won the HBO Short Film Award this year.

Stephen Tyrone Williams and Wilzette Borno

A 2-day shoot, 6 crew members, 4-actors, borrowed equipment, in the director’s basement in Jamaica, Queens.  It goes to show that making a good film isn’t necessarily about how many bells and whistles you can throw into the cost of the shoot, but really about how you can combine the elements you have to make a good story.

Big congrats to all involved.

Look for “Stag and Doe” on HBO within the next few months.
