Ravitz, a partner with Visual Terrain, comments, "I am grateful for the recognition by the Aurora Awards committee. I was quite proud of the work we did on El Grito, and this comes as a nice confirmation of a highly coordinated effort." Ravitz’s recent credits include The Kids in the Hall comedy special, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band’s telecast from Barcelona, and Usher’s current DVD and broadcast.
