On a hot Texas evening in beautiful downtown San Antonio, The Texas Motion Picture Alliance (TXMPA) hosted their 2nd Annual Impact Awards. For those unaware, The Impact Awards is an event honoring Texas productions, businesses and individuals that have a positive and unique impact on their communities through Television, Film, Commercial and Video Gaming production.
Basically, its a pretty cool event where some really awesome people in the film industry get together for a great cause. Way To Go Media was there to witness the awards event on October 14, 2017. Here are some photos, courtesy of Melissa Sandy Photography where noted.
