And the winner of Film Dash is…

Team Make It So with Happiness – The Novelisation.

I’d like to congratulate Team Make It So on their winning entry to this year’s Film Dash 48-hour film challenge, as chosen by editor of Catherine Bray and script editor Kate Leys. Congratulations! Here’s some notes from Kate on their film:

This a glorious mess and it is very, very good.  It is a perfect realisation of the most important thing about storytelling, filmmaking and art in general: too many people make the mistake of thinking that what we (audiences) turn out for is clever plots, when in fact what we turn out for is the truth, organised into some sort of shape.  This film has a beginning, a middle and an end.  It is superbly, excruciatingly truthful and as such it is immediately universal: apart from anything else it probably tells the story of all the other films too.  I liked it a lot.  Now they have to go and get some training…

And here’s the film.

As promised, a proper ‘thank you’ post is on the way, but for now, thanks to everyone who took part, helped out and packed out the screening at the Electric Cinema, and especially to everyone who entered into the spirit of the competition. You’re the best!

So, see you next year?
