Is there a link for my interview?

Is there a nice, easy, efficient way to find the BTS photos that were screened before the show? I hear I have a kind of maybe nice one that I'd like to add to my collection to set a new high bar

Thank you Alec, Shannon, Miranda, and Kat Bugarin! The interviews look great.

I didn't win anything, but I appreciate the clout-by-association!

Every semester, there's excellent work that doesn't make our Student Show. It's only a two hour show! Last Fall, one wrenching omission was Partners, from Production 1, by the multi-talented Ashley Matkowsky. It's a film that deserves an audience, and we think it's a harbinger of more quality work from Ashley. Enjoy!
