Phoenix, April 1, 2019 – Elmer J. Howard of Thrive Productions has won the prestigious Award of Recognition from The Best Shorts Film Competition. The award was given for Elmer’s based-on-real-events short film “Loving Martin”. “Loving Martin” is a melancholic tale of love and loss.
“’Loving Martin’ is a real-life film. It doesn't steer away from the flaws of its characters and paints life for what it is sometimes. Messy. Hard, painful, and messy. With some excellent performances within it's short length, this is a title I would recommend to a lot of my friends. A good well-rounded short film. No question about that.” ~ ReelRomp
