MIA Independent Film award

Sea Front won in the Media Innovation Awards 2010 Independent Film category last night at St Mellion, Cornwall. We were really chuffed and it was a great night out too.

The judges described Sea Front as ‘a very atmospheric and nostalgic production that was beautifully produced’ and the Chair of the Judges Mark Leaver had kind words about our film after the presentation. It was good to talk to fellow Independent Film/Video nominee Joshua Gaunt who was pipped to the prize. The three films nominated from the category’s entries were all quite individual so the judging must have been hard.

It was clear that a lot of thought had gone into the judging of each category so thanks to all the people involved and to Karen and Kurston at PM-P. Jodie Burns, a student at PCoA was commissioned to make the beautiful trophies and David Fitzgerald was a great host for the evening.
