In attendance were writer/director/producer Christina Kallas, producer Allison Vanore, actors Laura Pruden, Lauren Sowa, Robert Z Grant, Chris Veteri, Tim Elliot, Christine McLaughlin, Isaiah Blake, Catherine Cobb Ryan, director of photography Dave Sharples, and editor Natalie Reneau.

It's been a very busy springtime and this spring brought an exciting surprise, Vanity was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Digital Series! We were honored to be nominated and attend the Nominee reception and the Creative Arts Awards. While Vanity didn't take home the statue, I'm happy we got to enjoy the experience with our producing team. Hopefully this means more Vanity in the future and more accolades if we keep up the good work. Go team Vanity!
