Michael I. Edwards, an academic technology coordinator for CU Online, was recognized by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences during the recent College Television Awards ceremony in Los Angeles for the original music he composed and recorded in partnership with his brother, Justin, and friend Andres Diaz for their short film “Come Back to Me.

The film tells the story of a young man who seeks to win back the love of his life by learning the guitar and singing his way back into her heart.

Justin lives in Los Angeles, “while Andrés and I are here in Denver,” Edwards said. “We collaborated on the music over the Internet with me handling the production/mixing of the songs.” Justin produced the film as a student project at the American Film Institute Conservatory, where he recently earned a master’s degree.

The brothers also have another collaboration, said Michael Edwards. “We've published an eBook for the iPad called ‘The Pseudobook.’ It's full of humorous stories, essays and jokes.”
