CHEYENNE, Wyo. (WTW) — Daniel Junge's phone hasn't stopped ringing since Sunday night.
The Cheyenne native won an Oscar at the 84th annual Academy Awards
for his work co-directing the short documentary "Saving Face." On
Monday, it seemed like everyone wanted to send their congratulations
through a text message, an email or a phone call.
"They just keep coming in," he said.
His acceptance speech Sunday was short, thanking a handful of people,
including his wife, before yielding the floor to his co-director,
...Michell Howard, the manager of the Wyoming Film Office, said she
hoped her office could continue to support filmmakers like Daniel Junge
in the future.
"The goal of our office is not to just bring filmmakers to the state,
but also to promote those filmmakers already in the state like Daniel,"
she said. "He is a very talented filmmaker."
