Northern Futures Award Success!

I am very proud to announce that The Astronomer's Sun won it's first award last night at the Northern Futures Awards!

The film was awarded first place by the judges against some stiff competition from other northern film makers, including another couple of shorts co-produced by Screen Yorkshire. You can see the rest of he short list here -

Our film was the only animation in the group so it was a great honour to receive the award and get to meet some of the other films creators.

Jess couldn't make it to the awards ceremony but our producer David came along and you can see us both in the pictures below.

Many thanks to the Northern Futures organisers for a great night!

All the shortlisted films had their own screen and some information about the productions beside them.

Myself and the other nominees sat together on the film table waiting nervously!

  1. We always knew it was an award winning film and now we can say this loudly and proudly. Well done Si, Jess and David and all the team that made it as good as it is. This is the first but not the last time I can write and say, well done as from all the festivals we are yet to screen in I think there will be some more awards to follow. A great blog to see. All the best, Peter M. Kershaw, Duchy Parade Films.
