A few weeks back the 2013 Virgin Media Shorts award winners were announced.
If you aren’t familiar with it, it’s a competition in which emerging filmmakers can submit their own short movies in the hopes of winning £30,000 to go towards the shooting of their next film.
While the Grand Prize went to Nimer Rashed and his short film Touch, it was John McPhail and his crew at Worrying Drake Productions who won the hearts of the common man by winning both the public-voted awards: the Nikon People’s Choice award and the Tivo award.
A disclaimer: I’m biased because John’s a friend of mine. But even if he wasn’t I still would have voted for his film, Just Say Hi, because it’s just so bloody adorable.
Have a gander at the short for yourself to see what I mean. Congrats Johnny boy: can’t wait to see what you come up with next.
