Congratulations to our very own Lee Chambers, professor of Film Production, who has been nominated as Screenwriter of the Year for his Make It Short film project Hugh Jackman Saves the World in the Northern Ontario Music and Film Awards. 

Chambers told SooToday.com: "Hugh Jackman Saves The World is an engaging comedy that shows that the gadget-obsessed youth of today may also be using the gear for positive reasons. When a gang of 15-year-old Australia girls is confronted about their cell phone and iPad activity they giggle away... But secretly, away from adult supervision, they are deep into a discussion about world politics and hatch a unique plan to head off a pending confrontation."
