June 8 - Beverly Hills, CA

FTVM alumnus Perry Janes (’12) recently won a silver medal in the “Alternative Category” for his Honors film Zug at the 40th Annual Student Academy Awards ceremony at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater.

In his acceptance speech, Janes thanked all of his professors from the University of Michigan, especially Terri Sarris. "Terri Sarris...my mentor, my thesis advisor, my friend. I’m very lucky to have had her as a part of my formative growth as a filmmaker,” Janes fondly said.

Congratulations Perry and Terri!
