The Wind Down

THE WIND DOWN...

Everything about the Vegas Movie Awards is beautiful, from the location of the event (Las Vegas) to the event's official website to the event laurels to the Certificate of Achievement to that gorgeous, golden trophy awarded to the Monthly and Annual winners. And we are a proud (and excited) Dual Mania team right now. Because we have been blessed to be part of such an amazing (and I do mean amazing) #FilmFestival event.

Thank you, #VegasMovieAwards, for having us. We will cherish it until the end of time. Thank you.

Not only did #DualMania (the film itself) receive an #OfficialSelection to the 2019 Vegas Movie Awards June event in exciting Las Vegas, Nevada, but also did one of the songs from the Dual Mania #OriginalMotionPictureSoundtrack -- namely the beautiful track titled "I Do," which written by the lovely #CatEllington.

"I Do," a work that Cat also co-produced with gifted #Songwriter and #Musician, #PrincetonBrown (Princeton Brown), was then selected as a Best 6 #SemiFinalist at the 2019 #VegasMovieAwards, completely bowling us over with elation and commanding from us the more humility.
Congratulations Cat and Princeton; this honor was genuinely earned. Because you're both greatly talented.

Thanks again, #VegasMovieAwards, for the outstanding recognition of our feature film, and of every aspect that pertains to it. Thank you.
