NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, April 1, 2021 / — Lori Hamilton spent some of last year collaborating with other artists like animator Montana Hall to produce multiple short film projects. Her positive messages and comedic approach to life have gained her recognition from film festivals around the world and now, four of her films have won the Award of Recognition from The Best Shorts Competition.

The awards of recognition were given for Hamilton’s engaging film shorts: Potato Family, Project Spudway, Positivity Piñata, and Corporate Knobs, each of which uses humor to critique various social environments while also teaching positive lessons. These film shorts all display Hamilton’s diverse skill set, featuring excellent comedic dialogue written by her and high-quality production.

“It is a great honor to have all four of my shorts be recognized and ultimately win in The Best Shorts Film Competition. I am so grateful to be able to bring positive, happy messages to the world,” says Hamilton.

Positivity Piñata – Hamilton created this film during the COVID-19 pandemic as a cute cartoon to help remind us that even when the changes in the world are scary, we can still find kindness if we look. The film illustrates how each one of us has something we can share to help spread kindness in our own cities. Whether it is bringing food to an elderly neighbor or making a “thank you” sign to encourage health-care workers, there are simple ways everyone can help.

Potato Family – The animated short is the introduction to her interactive “Project Spudway” that features a young potato who dreams of being a designer. His unusual artistic tastes cause his family some concern. As they attempt to discourage his self-expression, he only becomes more determined, eventually choosing to pursue a successful career in fashion.

Project Spudway – The continuation of her Potato Family series. It features lessons from Project Runway told through the eyes of animated potatoes that teach viewers about body acceptance and positivity.

The Corporate Knobs – a comedy variety show that gives you the TRUTH about work life. Hamilton shares comedic insight into the corporate world through a series of skits featuring HR, Bad Mangers, and Real World Job Descriptions. All four shows have been chosen for other festivals as well and have received positive responses from audiences and critics alike.
