The Savannah College of Art and Design film competition judged entries based on originality, craftsmanship and creative use of technical tools.
By “Burrulaa” winning the silver award, Osiecki was offered a $4,000 scholarship if he chooses to apply to and attend the college for his undergraduate studies. If so, he must maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 per year to maintain the scholarship.
Osiecki’s film “Burrulaa,” can be found on YouTube by typing in Burrulaa and Osiecki. It will also be posted on the Skaneateles Press website.
