The winners of 'The Shot' short film competition were announced last night at an awards ceremony at the Covent Garden Hotel in London.
To enter the competition, budding filmmakers had to produce a 10 minute film entitled 'The Shot' using a Digital SLR camera. All entries were judged by a panel of film and television directors, headed by Paul WS Anderson, Director of the Resident Evil series and the 3 Musketeers 3D.
David Schofield from Ashton-Under-Lyne was unveiled as the outright winner of 'The Shot' and was presented with his top prize of £5,000 worth of Nikon photographic equipment and an all expenses trip to spend the day with Film Director Paul WS Anderson on the set of his latest movie.
David said: "I feel amazing and privileged that my work has been honoured by a group of credible film industry experts. I think it will take a while for it all to sink in and I am looking forward to meeting Paul WS Anderson on set, he is a cool guy! My film was completely self-funded so I am looking forward to choosing some great Nikon equipment that will set-me up for the future."
