So not long ago, i was asked by a good friend and talented film maker Owen Beck to help him DOP his PHD feature film Bngvel in Cambodia.
It was a tough and challenging project but was great fun.
It turns out it got nominated for several West Australian Screen awards, one of those being best Cinematography - long form.
Considering this film had a $20,000 dollar budget and we were up against films with $1.5 million dollar budgets, we didn't think we stood much chance. But still we got in our suites and decided we might as well rock up for a free drink and a meal.
Well it turns out it was a good thing we ended up getting dressed up, which is not something i do very often. As we took home two awards, "Best Cinematography" & "Best Direction".
We probably didn't make the most confident speeches on the night as we were in a bit of shock. But here is probably the speech I should have given on the night that I posted later to Facebook
As you can see by the picture bellow we were very honoured to take these awards home, and Owen and I have some pretty exciting projects coming up in the next 6 months that we will be announcing as soon as we can.
To see more about the film Bngvel head to its Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/bngvel , due to this being a PHD feature film it has not been released publicly yet, but will be over the coming months, So stay tuned for public screenings.
