Local filmmaker wins Emmy award for editing short film

July 29, 2012


Lawrence filmmaker Marc Havener won a regional Emmy award last week for his short film about fatherhood, “And What Remains.”

Havener won in the Best Editing of a Short Film category in the annual awards ceremony from the Heartland Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The event was held Aug. 21 in Denver.

The film was nominated for four Emmys, including Musical Composition/Arrangement (Josh Garrels and Jay Kirkpatrick), Talent-Narrator (Rick Mumford) and Magazine Program — Feature/Segment (Havener, executive producer Tim Ellis and producer Rick Cree).

“And What Remains” has won numerous awards at a slew of festivals since its release in 2009.

It tells the story of a father who brings his teenage son to Paola to learn about the boy’s grandfather. The father wonders what his legacy will be and how his son will think of him when he is gone. The film is based on Cree’s writings, and stars Cree and his son, Micah.

Havener’s next project is a short film about the Heartland Community Health Center.
