“Will Roberts is a long-time partner to NewsBlaze, a living tour de force whose ingenuity and ability to see the future helps drive projects forward from one success to another,” said Alan Gray, NewsBlaze CEO. “We knew back in 2007 that we were great partners for each other, and we are over the moon to see him excelling in film.”
Originally Will was slated to receive this Best Actor award last year, however, because of Covid the festival did not happen in person and was moved to in-person in 2021 at the X World Short Film Festival in Las Vegas.
“It was great to see people back in theaters and the energy in the theater was high that night as awards were given out.” Will Roberts said.
