Our film ‘Lonely At The Top’ is chosen in the Reed short film competition long list.
I held my breath yesterday when I saw that Reed had announced their long list of short films, whittling the massive list of over 500 films down to just 50. Despite having a lot of confidence in our film, I had to prepare myself for the fact that we wouldn’t have made it, and as I scrolled quickly down the list of selections trying to spot the keyframe of our film, I had to concede that we hadn’t been successful. Oh well. Onto the next project. And then my eye suddenly fell on a picture of our leading actor and me sitting at a desk and realised our film had been chosen afterall – it’s just they’d chosen a completely different keyframe to throw me off the scent… the bastards.
Anyway, we are thrilled to have made it down to the last 50 films and weren’t remotely surprised to see a lot of our personal favourites from the competition had also made it through. I particularly like ‘The Boss’ by Alex Emslie which is a very inventive short and has already had astronomical online views, and ‘The Cake Fairy’ by Shooters Media which is beautifully shot, coloured and scripted. You can see both films below, but also take the time to look at all 50 of the other selected films here: http://www.reed.co.uk/film/2012/longlist
