This second award comes from the Global Shorts International Film Competition, which features films 50 minutes in length or less.

“Words can’t express how pleased I am to win another award for The Power of Words™: Making a Difference One Person at A Time. This is our second win,which tells me is that people are listening to the message we’re putting out and really appreciate what we are looking to do with the film.”, said Tyler.

Tyler directed the film. He was also the Executive Producer, creator, and starred in it. Aja Vickers was the Producer and Cinematographer. It was the first collaboration between the two. Vickers says she couldn’t be happier with the results and she never imagined the film would win one award, let alone two.
“Teaming up with Richard has really been a blessing. Every project and everything he works on radiates positivity and those are the types of things I really enjoy working on,” she said.
