Lukas Nelson and P.O.T.R.

Lukas Nelson & P.O.T.R. got into the 2014 awards season spirit when the film they scored, Satellite Beach, took home the Bruce Corwin Award at the 29th Annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Feb. 9 in Santa Barbara, Calif. This is the first film that Nelson and the band have scored.

The movie’s win is in the category of Best Live Action Short Film Under 30 Minutes. The short, directed brothers Luke Wilson (Old School, The Royal Tenenbaums, Idiocracy) and Andrew Wilson (Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, Hall Pass), is about the journey of the Endeavor space shuttle as it travels through Los Angeles to the California Science Center and on to the Kennedy Space Center.
