Three former Charlotteans — all in their mid-30s, all graduates of Charlotte-Mecklenburg high schools between 2001 and 2003 — will cross paths at the Academy Awards this Sunday. One helped produce an Oscar-nominated short narrative; another helped produce an Oscar-nominated short documentary; a third has built buzz around an actress who’s the odds-on favorite to take home a statue at the 91st annual ceremony. These are their stories.

Connection #1: This documentary producer also held a camera

Connection #2: This on-the-rise producer aided ‘Skin’

Connection #3: He keeps Regina King in the spotlight
