Thanks to your votes, the documentary about Hollywood concept artist "Tyrus Wong: Brushstrokes in Hollywood" won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!

Congratulations to "Tyrus Wong: Brushstrokes in Hollywood" director Pamela Tom. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Tribeca Film Institute.
 
Here's what the project's about:
 

"Tyrus Wong: Brushstrokes in Hollywood" is a documentary feature that examines the life and work of pioneering Chinese-American artist Tyrus Wong. The film tells the story of how a young boy from Southern China overcame a life of poverty and racial discrimination to become a celebrated illustrator, painter, lithographer, kite maker, Hollywood sketch artist, and Disney Legend. "Brushstrokes in Hollywood" unveils the unique blend of influences that shaped Tyrus Wong and his art – from his passion for the bold art of the Sung dynasty to his work as a depression-era muralist, California watercolor painter and Hollywood set illustrator.
