The Live My Life music video wins its fourth accolade this year, The Gold Level Award, for best music video at the 2010 California Film Awards.  Live My Life, at first considered a long shot on the festival scene as a mere music video, since June 2010, has continued to gain in prestige, with festival awards and selections including, Finalist in The Flip Side Film Festival (formerly the SoCal Film Festival), Honorable Mention at The Los Angeles International Film Festival, Selection and double screening at the LA Femme Film Festival, and the prestigious Accolade Award of Merit, for its simple originality and visionary portrayal of the bailout in a rebel rock and roll genre.  

In addition, the Live My Life music video was featured at, “In Conversation”, a special event at Largo in West Hollywood which was hosted in November, by writer and Wall Street insider Nomi Prins along with Rolling Stone journalist Matt Taibi who recently published his own detailed “map” of the American Mortgage Crisis, his book, Griftopia.  Largo is known as the gathering place of Hollywood’s intelligentsia   including Sean Penn who also attended.  The video had been suggested to the producers by Ms. Prins who has been a champion and promoter of the video that parodied TARP and continues to gain importance as the issues of the bailout and the mortgage crisis re-heat in the news.

“I always felt that this piece would become important as time went on,” expressed the video’s director Michael Cornell.  “Live My Life is now being viewed by more people all the time and resonating with audiences.”  

Each year the California Film Awards recognizes and celebrates important world cinema that represents the forefront of aesthetic, critical and entertainment standards in contemporary independent filmmaking and screenwriting.
