The Academy Awards are coming up in a week, and we want to offer our warmest congratulations to Elaine McMillion Sheldon and Kerrin Sheldon - two of our exceptional Sleeping Giant cinematographers - for their Best Documentary Short nomination. Their own film is called Heroin(e), and their nomination is well deserved both because they are incredibly talented filmmakers and because the powerful story they tell, about the opioid crisis in West Virginia, is as urgent as it is. We were lucky to get to work with them and wish them giant amounts of good fortune at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood next week.
It also sheds light on one of the most difficult challenges many communities in West Virginia - which we feature in Sleeping Giant as well - are facing.
Hopefully you'll hear more about Heroin(e) after the Oscars, but whatever else you do go watch it on Netflix as soon as you can.
P.S. Here's an article on Heroin(e) and their Oscar nomination, and here is the trailer:
