Dan Ford, Executive Producer at Skin and Bones Film Co. and LIA Production & Post-Production juror stated, “It was a real pleasure being included on the panel judging the Production/Post Production Craft awards this year. Spending a few days in a room sifting through a mountain of great entries is not nearly as easy as I’d thought it would be but the team LIA assembled was extraordinary. A great group of people being led by a fantastic President, Rob Galluzzo, made the entire experience really quite wonderful.

Judging is one of the few times throughout the year that we get to debate what good work is. Judging work with such a diverse group all with slightly different points of view is really refreshing.”
