What a treat it was to host the Creative Rush/Tallgrass Film Association 2016 Down to the Wire 24-Hour Film Race Top Ten Showcase at the Wichita Orpheum Theatre. I feel at home on the Orpheum stage, and the energy in the theatre was electric. Here are just a few highlights from the evening:

Tallgrass does a great job with their social media presence, so my co-host Emily Strom and I  kicked off the awards show with an onstage selfie to encourage people to keep tweeting, snapping, and recording:

Every showcase needs an opening number, so Emily and I worked up a little ditty to the tune of “Give My Regards to Broadway” which listed off some of the more comical challenges of trying to create a six-minute short film in just 24 hours:
