His film was selected out of the 29 short films reviewed by the North of Superior Film Association (NOSFA) panel. Aside from cash awards, the young director also received a short critique in a congratulatory letter presented by NOSFA President Marty Mascarin.

The judging panel used criteria centering on direction, cinematography, editing, lighting, and sound in their assessment.

Khanseng believes that progress isn't made by early risers or hard workers, but by lazy people trying to find easier ways to do the same. “You are living up to your dream, we are proud of you” remarked his proud father showering his congratulatory note to his son, news agency The Arunachal Times reported.

The short film of Khanseng Mein "The Beta" is based on a short story by Anton Chekhov, and centers on a wager between two men whereby one man agrees to live alone in an isolated cabin

for ten years to prove that solitary confinement is more humane than capital punishment.

The awards are named in honour of NOSFA vice-president, David Brown, who passed away from cancer in 2008. The award ceremony to honour the graduating aspiring filmmaker marked the 20th year that NOSFA has issued the David Brown awards to graduates of the College film production programme.
