Film Dash

And the winner is…

Dunkirk by Team TTV

On Sunday night, at The Odeon on New Street, I announced the winners of Film Dash: Digital Galore! as part of the ‘Into The Light’ event celebrating the legacy of Sir Michael Balcon.

Rill Marchant, Pete Ashton and Danny Smith’s film featured a small robot lost and lonely in Digbeth. The judges praised its charm, humour, the use of non-conventional filming techniques and the use of the city.

Big congrats to them. Here they are too, looking all happy:


Finally I’d like to thank the judges – Roger Shannon, Matthew Stanton and Catherine Bray – for, as I said on the night, doing the job that I never could have done.

Catherine Bray has been kind enough to publish a judge statement on the 4Talent website giving her thoughts on the entries.
