The writing team of Matthew Hill and Landon Johnson is an outstanding example of a brighter future in the industry. Not only did they win the inaugural Chronos Prize with BURNING AT BOTH ENDS, they first captured our attention with a runner up for the Kairos Prize for UNDER THE APPLE TREE. This was no small feat! They have spoken at prestigious MOVIEGUIDE events and been captivating. They are wise, witty and profound.
