Often Awesome the Series, a documentary about Timothy LaFollette, has been produced into 28 webisodes by All Aces Media. The ongoing webisodes are documenting his battle with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. All Aces Media entered the first part of the ongoing web documentary series last year for the 2010 LA Web Fest to earn several awards, and this year they have been selected to show the second part of the series.
The documentary series earned several awards at the 2010 LA Web Fest including; Outstanding Achievement in a Documentary or News Series and Outstanding Theme Music in a Documentary or News Series.
The team behind LaFollette is his wife, Kaylan, and the Often Awesome Army. This team has put on benefit rock concerts and art auctions to raise awareness. The Often Awesome Army is a strong and powerful support system that will continue to help spread awareness for ALS. The Army has teamed up with the crew of All Aces Media to increase awareness for the ALS throughout the state of North Carolina and beyond.
According to All Aces Media (allacesmedia.com), they have been asked to “participate in a panel on the power and importance of documentary web series.” Andy Coon will be traveling to Los Angeles, CA from March 25th to the 27th to play their webisodes live in open-air, and share LaFollette’s battle with thousands of others, for this year’s web festival. Coon will not only be representing his media production team, but the Often Awesome Army. The Often Awesome Army (oftenawesome.org) will continue to spread awareness for ALS for years to come in hopes of soon finding a cure.
