'The Man Who Stopped' shortlisted on Shootingpeople's Film of the Month
We were all very pleased to be shorlisted in December's Film of the Month on Shootingpeople. In case you're not familiar with the competition films uploaded each month are 'liked' by Shootingpeople members and the top three voted films are sent off and judged by a well known industry professional. For December, Andrea Arnold (Fishtank, Wuthering Heights) was judging the competition and she said this about the 'The Man Who Stopped': "I loved the man Derek. I really liked the still shots of him. I understood his desire to be still. The film was funny but made me very sad."
This result marks the second time one of our films has got into the top three as in July 2011 'One Other Thing' won the competition when John Waters was judging.
The winner for December I should add was Ed Lilly's 'The Hive' and our fellow runner-up was Jonathan Harris' 'The Cull'. Well done to you both.
Thank you everyone who liked the film and to all the cast, crew and funders.
