Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Lead Immersive Designer/ Content Lead at IBM — Emoti-Con Judge
Y'all did an amazing job with this short film! The production of this is super impressive and I learned a lot about the inequalities in my own neighborhood. I really love how you incorporated different viewpoints and tested out different kinds of interviews (panels, on the street, etc). I would just suggest introducing yourselves and what interested you in this project. This is an awesome project and thank you for opening my eyes!

👏 Manager & Designer at NERD Escapes — Emoti-Con Judge
Wow, amazing teamwork on this presentation! I was so into the topic at hand, it was only afterwards that I realized how much technical skills and research you all put into bringing this presentation to life. Amazing job on the editing of the video. The flow kept the topic captivating and your passion for the idea and topic really shined through! Great job introducing your team and even the programs you visited that seem to be outspoken in the community about income inequality. It would be great to get to know some of the interviewee's so the viewers can being inspired to get in touch with others involved in their local programs!

Great job interviewing so many amazing people and including all your research in this short film! True filmmakers putting a lot of heart into their work are on this team!
