We are thrilled to announce the winners of our SITE/SIGHT Video Monologue Contest. A little over a year ago, we posted a challenge on our blog to write a short script 60 seconds in length that was “SIGHT specific” – about an event witnessed and/or experienced and “SITE specific” – set in a specific NYC location. This past year, we cast and shot all the scripts. We are excited to share these short films with you written by some incredible writers. Please enjoy and share…
