Accolade winners

Accolade Global Film AwardsJulius R. Nasso Productions, One Eyed King, feature film, is set in Hell’s Kitchen and tells the story of the Irish mob and its generations of gangsters. It’s a tale of epic proportions, like The Godfather, with an all-star cast including William Baldwin, Armand Assante and Chazz Palminteri. Fast moving and highly entertaining.

Accolade Global Film AwardsMichael S. Emerson Productions, The History Channel’s: Hollywoods Greatest Villains, history/biographical, is a fascinating and terrifying glimpse of some of the most evil, and best-loved, characters ever created. This insightful film features interviews with Sharon Stone, George Lucas, John Carpenter, Glenn Close, James Earl Jones, and Martin Landau.

Accolade Film FestivalLes Is More Productions, A Musical Journey With Richard Sherman, direction, is a charming featurette in which the legendary composer takes viewers on a magical journey that reveals many secrets about the music of Mary Poppins. Shot against a green-screen it flows exceptionally well, provides interesting background commentary and uses rare footage.

Accolade Film FestivalDaniel Macy, Heineken Spot, commericals/public relations, builds a compelling case for the sponsor’s product by showing how even a clumsily nerd can get a beautiful girl by bringing her the “right beer”. No bells, no whistles, no fancy graphics or camera work, just an everyman theme with humor and quirky character development to sell product.
