It’s not every day a side interest becomes a Student Academy Awards-nominated film. Shane Watson, an O’Fallon, Illinois, native, became interested in film during a trip to Barcelona in 2013, and only four years later, his short film “I Live Here” is up for an Oscar. “I never thought I’d be a semi-finalist in my life, and then I got told I was a finalist. It’s amazing,” says Watson. Regardless of the results, the filmmaker already feels as though he’s won.
