The Potato Family’s comedic take on social acceptance resonates with audiences

I am so grateful to be able to produce creative work that resonates with people.”— Lori HamiltonNEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 24, 2021 / -- Hamilton’s film, Project Spudway, was selected as a Jury Finalist for Best Animation in the 19th annual Riverside International Film Festival in California. The short comedic film has now been featured in several festivals this year including the theSpaceUK online, the California International Shorts Festival, and The Best Shorts Competition where it won an Award of Recognition.

Project Spudway is a continuation of Hamilton's short film project, Potato Family, with illustrator and animator Montana Hall. It features lessons from Project Runway told through the eyes of animated potatoes. You’ll see the first episode featuring fashion guru Christian Siriano’s explanation of why we should design for all body types, not just the skinny French fry. Yams and hashbrowns add color and flavor to the spud-tactic design show, complete with outtakes!

Hamilton enjoys using her diverse skill set as an actress, producer, and comic to create works that share her own unique perspective on the world. “I am so grateful to be able to bring positive, happy messages to the world,” Hamilton said.
