2nd May 2018 - myself and Producer Alex Nagshineh visited Hawker House in London's Docklands for the Branded Film Festival Awards. Our documentary - Fields Trips (video below), produced by Alex's production company Bonafide Content, was in the Branded Documentary section.
We won a Gold award in our section as well as one of only 5 "Best of the Best" awards.
With only 5 "Best of the Best" awards given, and 96 high quality other entrants including BP, Virgin Media, Volvo, The Economist, Jaguar Land Rover and HSBC, we didnt think our shoe-string production would come anywhere close.
We were so shocked we didn't have a chance to thank the Branded Film Festival organisers, Paul Crognale at Shure, our drone Camera Operator - Richard Garner of Camera Pilots (www.facebook.com/camerapilots), Paul White, Dan Pickard and Steve Chan.
The Brand Film Festival showcases the year’s most artistic, creative and effective branded content films, from YouTube videos to long-form documentaries. This unique gathering honors a new generation of marketing storytellers, while rewarding the brands, agencies, and craftspeople leading the way in their fields.
