“When you see all the damage after a disaster strikes, and meet victims who lost everything, it makes you wonder why everyone isn’t doing more to prepare. As our experts point out in the film, there’s something everyone should be doing right now to get ready.”

George Siegal, Director/Producer with Move the World Films, has won a prestigious Award of Distinction from Accolade Global Film Competition. The award was given for Siegal’s powerful message in The Last House Standing which highlights that everyone needs a home that doesn’t blow away, wash away, or burn down. The Last House Standing features dramatic stories from disaster victims, along with expert advice from Water Ambassador Henk Ovink, Former FEMA Director Brock Long, Sustainability expert Aris Papadopoulos and many others about how important it is for everyone to be proactive instead of reactive when it comes to disasters.
