One of the films, "Cuban Earth" earned a silver and two gold Telly Awards, while the other film, "Mongolia: Earth and Spirit" a gold and two bronze awards in the general non-broadcast category.

Both films were filmed on location in Cuba and Mongolia.

Levin is the director of the Master of Fine Arts in Documentary Production and Studies program in UNT's Department of Media Arts.
