Professor Stephan Larson received a Gold Award from the Spotlight Short Film Awards for his animation In Capricious Hands. The Spotlight Short Film Awards is dedicated to promoting experienced and new filmmakers through a unique and important international film competition. The spirit of the Spotlight Short Film Awards is to value each film based upon it’s artistic merit alone. The organization is composed of industry professionals: filmmakers, independent film consultants, film festival organizers, festival programmers and judges who have been in the business nearly 20 years, and share a passion for independent film. For the 2015 awards, over 25,000 independently produced film submissions were reviewed and 75 Gold Awards were given. Larson’s animation, In Capricous Hands, finished the film festival circuit in early 2016 with over a dozen festival appearances across the United States including the Phoenix Film Festival, the Athens International Film and Video Festival, and the Boston Underground Film Festival.
