He won the 2012 Media Educator of the Year Award by the Social Change Film Fest and Institute and helps 3 to 9 features get made per semester. 

Morris is sought out by his peers for his ability to take smaller budgets and make epic creations. All of his features screened at the Cannes Film Festival Market sold for far above what their budgets should allow.
