I am really pleased to announce my short film ‘The Dark and Light’ picked up its first award last month at the Pendragwn Film Festival in America!
The Dark and Light is a revised version of ‘The Dark and Light of Day’ which was funded by the BFI last June. It was a great project which involved a mentoring editorial process. The film was shot early June and then re-drafted and re-shot a few weeks later staring Mike Allen and George Baker.
The film won the award for ‘best cinematography’ which is terrific also as I shot the film myself! I love working with different cinematographers but I also this it is beneficial to be able to shoot a film on my own. I think it ads meaning to the word ‘filmmaker’ over a ‘film director’. Although directing is where i am looking to hone my career, being able to scale dale to a one or two man crew helps for the lower budget projects.
