Photoshopping written and directed by Mark Davenport was finished at Sublime Pictures in Manchester on Final Cut and graded in Colour. See the trailer in our portfolio section here.
The film was submitted to the Aesthetica Festival in York and selected as one of five films to show on the opening night. Mark and I had a great evening at the opening but unfortunately could not stay for the whole event.
Photoshopping won the Best Comedy Award at Aesthetica Short Film Festival 2012. Here is what the panel and judges said:
A brilliantly dark comic tale about a woman who is obsessed with photographing celebrities and breaking a world record. The film’s narrative is creative, engaging, and above all funny. The acting and cinematography perfectly capture the obsessive world that the main character inhabits, not to mention there’s a scene with Fern Brittan running through a shopping centre. Magnificent!
Below is the Aesthetica trailer, it is an excellent festival.
