University of Central Florida alumnus Presley Adamson won “Best Documentary Short” at the 2011 Orlando Film Festival for his documentary film, The Best Available Science.

Presley graduated in 2010 with a Radio/Television Production degree. He produced the film his senior year while enrolled in Dr. Lisa Mill’s documentary course.

In The Best Available Science, Presley follows a group of local fishermen on the east coast of Florida as they struggle to survive with increasingly restrictive fishing regulations, which they say are unnecessary and are causing the demise of their local economy.

The Best Available Science has previously been recognized nationally with a CINE Golden Eagle Award and has screened at two international film festivals.
