We won! 'Fin' awarded People's Choice award at 'I Shot Hong Kong' Film Festival

It's been a long, hard road. Along the way we've been to Mozambique, South Africa, Yemen and Sheung Wan. We've been "shooting the shark" since April 2006, and finally last Friday night the fruits of labours finally paid off.

Out of four possible awards, our short film 'Fin' was awarded the 'People's Choice' award at the 'I Shot Hong Kong' indie film festival here in Hong Kong.

What this means is that festival goers could vote for their favourite short film out of twelve finalists, each short film being no longer than 15 minutes. The movies screened one after the other at the Grand Cinema at Elements in West Kowloon, and at the end of each screening punters could drop ballot slips marking their favourite short into ballot boxes provided.

And after three days of voting (eight shows) we won! Here's to the people! One for the sharks! Yay!
