Locally Created Short Film Wins Lone Star Emmy Award

Local students, agencies, schools and various members of the community recently partnered together to present the Shattered Dreams program to alert high school students to the dangers of underage drinking and driving while intoxicated.

This project resulted in a short film that featured members of the community and recently received a Lone Star Emmy Award.

The video featured local students, Hailey Cassell and Mateo Guerrero from Central High School, as well as Gabriella Ramirez and Manuel Rodriguez from Lake View High School.

This film also encompassed the partnership of local businesses, firefighters, police officers, health care professionals and EMS professionals.

Shattered Dreams presented this short film in an assembly of over 1500 students at Foster Communications Coliseum on April 26, 2017.

A survey handed out to participating students, as well as an online social media presence, showed that the film had a powerful impact.

The film was written and directed by Brian Groves with the City of San Angelo and Brandon Whitford from Angelo State University.

A list of participants can be found on the City of San Angelo’s website under Credits. The full video can also be viewed here.
