UPDATE: Our film has won Best Film, Best Drama and Best Photography awards at the SERIAC Film Festival 2017 in Tonbridge, Kent.
We are also pleased to announce our film, (made in association with South Downs Film Makers), is the WINNER of the SUSSEX FILM FESTIVAL CHALLENGE CUP 2016, plus Winner for BEST DRAMA, Winner for BEST ACTOR (Sam Hoye) and Winner of the new Sussex Film Festival MIKE COAD TROPHY for the Audience's Favourite Film. This is so AMAZING! Thank you for all your support.
We were also shortlisted in the South Shorts Film Competition Top 3 films for Best Story at the Worthing WoW Festival.
This is a short film about faith and hope, which I made despite no money with the love and help of friends, old and new.
We made it from scratch in just 1 week - we shot it on Friday and Saturday, then edited it the following Thursday and Friday to enter into the South Shorts Film Competition.
The week before the shoot we didn't even have the cast. We had a day booked to shoot as Mary Waugh playing Evelyn in the film was only available that one day, between a hectic travelling schedule and major 83rd birthday celebrations!
Somehow we managed to pull it off and get the project realised.
I am hugely grateful to the 7 people who made such a massive contribution. Mary Waugh for the inspiration to write the story. Sam Hoye for appearing just at the right moment. Emily Sly for travelling from the north to be here and make it happen. Rebecca Simmons for being such a driving force and never moaning at my constant demands. Gordon Lonsdale for helping me buy the endless supplies of whatever it takes. Mike Spanton (from South Downs Film Makers) for his great camera work. Matt Beaumont for travelling form Brighton to record the sound. Everyone worked for free and put 110% into their efforts - THANK YOU!
Also my Dad for the inspiration.
I hope you enjoy the story.
