Karen Gerofsky, a Lycoming College alumna from Braintree, Mass., won an American Movie Award for her movie “Get It Together.”

“It was kind of crazy to win this award because we all worked so hard on pulling this funny short film off,” said Gerofsky. “We've had a lot of fun making this film and when we found out, the director, Ingrid Stobbe, and I were literally jumping up and down.”

Gerofsky played Sarah, one of the main characters in the short film, and managed all of the color correction editing. She also assisted with the creation and development of the story, in conjunction with Ingrid Stobbe, director, Elizabeth Mezzacappa and Ericka Maatman.

“Get It Together” is a movie about a relationship columnist with a book deal on the line who is dumped by her boyfriend. With time running out she turns to her friends to find all there is to know about the Boston dating scene. Against all odds, these four friends work to find dating research worth publishing. The trailer for the short film can be found on  Karen Gerofsky's website.

At the American Movie Awards, the Official Jury chose a single Grand Prize Winner along with one Silver Prize Winner and one Bronze Prize Winner based on review and analysis of all the nominees in over 25 categories. Gerofsky’s film was recognized as the Grand Prize Winner for the Produced Screenplay category. Recognition as an American Movie Awards Winner, Nominee or Official Finalist puts films, screenwriters and producers in an esteemed group of exceptional film industry talent.

Gerofsky graduated from Lycoming College in 2010 with a degree in digital media communication and a minor in media writing.
