'Noctuaries' wins IdeasTap Film Showcase
Happy to announce my film recently won the Film Showcase competition on IdeasTap, judged by one of my favourite documentary makers, Jerry Rothwell.
Jerry's film 'Deep Water' was a big inspiration for me (watch the trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejw4ScVQd1c), so I was very pleased to get this feedback from him:
"I found this film very moving, exploring bereavement through dreams, images and memories in a way that took us into deeply private experiences in a unique way. It's not easy to put yourself in your own film, there's always a risk of self-indulgence or self-pity - but I thought this was very well judged, honest and beautifully written and voiced."
