Edit House Productions, LLC has been selected to judge the upcoming 2013 Aurora Awards competition. The Aurora Awards are an independent international film and video competition for commercials and documentaries.
Edit House’s Ed Smith, producer, and Matt Smith, editor, will review submissions and choose those with highest production criteria. “The Aurora Awards recognized us as qualified to judge all of their incoming content, not just a limited category,” said Ed Smith. “We’ll likely be judging a cross-section of material from the United States and abroad.”
Edit House Productions, LLC won best of show in the 2011 competition for Creative Achievement in Cinematography category for the project “Mulungwishi: A United Methodist Mission”. Smith, and his wife Kim, who served as scriptwriter for the program, traveled some 38 hours to the Democratic Republic of the Congo in April 2011 and had only 4 days in-country to complete the entire 30 minute documentary.
That project may be seen on the EdithouseNM channel on YouTube.
