Little Man of Steel by Larry Ziegelman came in second with 175 votes and $100. In Little Man of Steel, Lois discovers the hardest part about dating Clark.
“My film “Little Man of Steel” has been online for almost 3 years now. The Audience Award was an opportunity for my film to get a new audience, making it feel like a fresh, brand-spanking new film! I thank you for that” ~Larry Ziegelman
In third place, winning 78 votes and $50, is Bed Bugs & Co by Serena Dykman. In Bed Bugs & Co, A bed bug inspector infests New Yorkers’ apartments instead of inspecting them.
“I think being part of Audience Awards was great, as it allowed us to showcase the full film online for the first time. We are just at the beginning of the festival circuit with this film, and a lot of festivals will not consider a film if it is available to watch online. However, being on Audience Awards for a limited amount of time does not affect our festival eligibility, and allowed us to build a buzz around the film, and engage people from around the world, not just to watch it, but also to vote. It increased our social media following as well”~ Serena Dykman
Congratulations to the winners!
