Award

"Some Candid Observations on the Eve of the End of the World" won best short of the competition in the London Calling scheme.  The award was presented by Stephen Woolley and he had praise for the cinematography amongst other things.  The award was part of Film London's main shorts scheme and the film will now go on to play in the London Film Festival.

It's a sci-fi-social realism-comedy crossover about a young man fantasising about an impending alien apocalypse to avoid dealing with a more grounded issue, the fact he will be a father. It was directed by John Howlett (great job!) and produced by my good friend Cecilia Frugiuele at Parkville Pictures.
