As fans of independent British film makers, our attention was drawn to the SCI-FI-London Film Festival, which held a 48hour Film Challenge at the beginning of April.
Over 180 films took part in order to win a development deal with Vertigo Films. The winner gets the chance to develop a feature film with the creators of StreetDance 3D and Monsters, which is a pretty good prize don’t you think?
Two amateur film makers who we are big fans of, Nick Acott and Gary Scullion, rose to the Sci-Fi challenge. You may remember that back in November we interviewed the pair after they made the great short The Night the Reindeer Died, on a budget of just £900.
They’ve managed to impress us again with their entry for the SCI-FI-London Film Festival, called Thought Provoking. Take a look for yourself and see what you think.
