From cutting edge color to super slick editing techniques, Henry has a wealth pf knowledge that he's always eager to share with anyone who asks. And he's also just about the most down to earth and humble guy we know. It wouldn't be Vision Quest without him!
It should come as no surprise that 'Get Back To That Feeling' is plastered in bold letters across the homepage of A Little Long Distance's site... because heartfelt, genuine storytelling is so obviously the driving force behind Josh and his wife's films. They won the Lovestories TV 2020 Film of the Year Award, and carved their own path by finding new ways to tell intimate, emotional and powerful stories. Josh is known for including vintage home movie footage into his films - making his work feel incredibly personal, layered and immediately nostalgia inducing. We are so excited to have this upbeat and positive dude gracing the stage at this year's VQ.
When you're watching one of Sharrone's showstopping films you know immediately - they're so instantaneously recognizable. This girl has got style for days and it's all her own. Sharrone (known as the Queen of East Coast Filmmaking or a mythical unicorn, depending on who you ask) goes against the grain while using minimal tools and lets her composition and light do all the talking. Sharrone will chat about how over the years she's cultivated her own truly unique process, style and vision. We are so beyond honored to have her back!
