Gone Fishing at the Kodak Awards, 2008


No really, watch it first…

So the night came. The games played out….

And we won. Yes we actually won the Kodak Best Short Film Award, 2008. Right now I am overwhelmed by my phone ringing, emails arriving every minute, and all sorts of new opportunities opening up. So tomorrow, I will write a lengthier blog entry about the whole event and my reflections. But for now, if you were involved in the making of Gone Fishing, I just need to say THANK YOU – together we made a great movie, together we now take the first step on the ladder of success…

Who knows where the game will lead us…!


Also, we got DP Vernon, Editor Eddie and Producer Ivan to sign a few extra posters, so if you want one, you can read more about it here…

Onwards and yes, upwards!

    Well done Chris…of course, it WAS the best film by miles, so it would have been a travesty if it DIDN’T win. You’d better book your flight to L.A. now :o)
