Out of 12,000 videos that were submitted to the show, only 50 made it to the semi-finals. Wow. Talk about tough competition. So today, as I was scanning the list of semi-finalists’ names for the first time, I was thrilled to see that one name in particular had made it through: Karla Jean Davis.
Karla is a very talented 25-year old tape operator from Altanta, Georgia. I’ve only had time to watch a very small portion of all those submissions and, fortunately, Karla’s was one of them. I was immediately impressed with her talent and right away added her film to my favorites list. Well, it looks like Steven Spielberg has taken note of her talent also and has chosen her for the top 50. I’m tickled pink for her! I should mention that Karla is also a blog mailing list subscriber, so if I seem a bit biased, I admit it. I totally am. Way to go, Karla! Congratulations on making it into the semi-finals. I’ll be rooting for you!
Be sure to check out Karla’s film submission.
