Drive Motion Pictures Wins Indie Fest Award of Merit

“Daytona Dream” Recognized as Outstanding Film

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Drive Motion Pictures, a division of Drive Digital Media, has won the prestigious Award of Merit from The Indie Fest, a film competition that recognizes exceptional achievement in craft and creativity, and those who produce standout entertainment or contribute to profound social change.

“We are thrilled and honored to be selected by the committee for this award,” said Matthew Barksdale, the producer of the film. “Our entire team poured their hearts into the project for nearly a year, and it is exciting to have our efforts rewarded.”

The award was given for the feature-length documentary “Daytona Dream,” which chronicles the year-long efforts of Level 5 Motorsports to assemble a dream team of elite race car drivers in hopes of winning North America’s most prestigious endurance racing event, the Rolex 24 At Daytona.

The unique and compelling film immerses its audience deep inside the tumultuous, unpredictable and thrill-a-minute world of road racing. Drive Motion Pictures’ team of cinematic professionals followed every step of the journey with state-of-the-art equipment and unwavering journalistic savvy. The filmmakers take their audience into the pits, into the cockpit and into the psyches of the extraordinary and passionate men who live to race — and race to live.

In winning an Indie, Drive Motion Pictures joins the ranks of other high-profile winners of this internationally respected award.

“The Indie is not an easy award to win,” said Indie Fest Chairman Thomas Baker, Ph.D. “Entries are received from around the world. The Indie helps to set the standard for craft and creativity.”
