SHORT FILM AWARDS ARE HERE AT LAST!
“Some jobs just turn out harder than you expected.” This was the sentiment echoed by all three of our judges, over the weeks we have screened and re-screened these awesome shorts.
Not only were there a ton of great films to choose from – and thank you ALL who participated – but there was huge variety within each category, making choices even harder. Truthfully, they could have all competed under the “Most Inspiring” banner, because they were! And it was humbling to see that much talent unspool.
But, decisions can’t be postponed any longer so…
HERE ARE THE PRIZES:
MOST INSPIRING ADVENTURE SHORT – “SWIM 1000” by Miguel Endara & Dave Cornthwaite.
MOST INNOVATIVE ADVENTURE SHORT – “FURTHER UP YONDER” by Giacomo Sardelli.
MOST SURPRISING ADVENTURE SHORT – “SHUNPO” by Steven Briand /Burayan Prods.
Even though there are only 3 categories and 3 prizes to award, some films simply could NOT be left out. So we’ve added some “Special Honors” for films that really distinguished themselves. They don’t win any gear this time, but please check them out. These filmmakers are ones to watch going forward.
Special Honor – Cinematography – “THIS IS AFRICA” by Benjamin Dowie.
Special Honor – Editing – “IT STARTS NOW – ALAN WATTS” by Tragedy & Hope.
Special Honor – Most Heart – “STILLBIRTH & SURFING” by Nathan Oldfield.
Special Honor – Airborne Adventure – “HALF PAST 2012” by Johannes Bergfors.
Special Honor – Timelapse Short – “DEATH VALLEY DREAMLAPSE” by Gavin Heffernan.
