Six Awards in One Weekend

What a wonderful surprise as Beyond Staffing scoops up Best Short Film and Best Director at the MP Film Festival in Belgium.

Six Successes!

It’s not very often that a run like this comes around, but this weekend was a perfect storm for all three of our latest shorts, each one picking up a Best Film in various categories in several prestigious international film festivals. 

Beyond Staffing, our latest, won Best Short Fim and Best Director at the MP Film Festival, Season 4 2019 in Belgium

Cats! won Best Short Comedy People’s Choice Awards at both the Austria International Film Festival and the World Film Fair in Los Angeles.

The Returning won Best Horror Film at both the Madrid Arts Film Festival and the World Film Fair in LA. 

None of this recognition would be possible without the help of the very important people who have been in front of and behind the camera in each of these projects, including:

Tunku Halim
Fairil Emran Desa
Leila Louise Fitton
Keren Bala Devan
Adrianna Astle
Rose Marie
David Yáñez Barroso
Shafina Sukiman
Rosli Basir
Chloe Yap
Amanda, Michael and Connor Russell

 

  • Beyond Staffing, Best Actress Nomination
  • Beyond Staffing, Best Short Film Winner
  • The Returning and Cats! make it to LA

Winners, Nominations and Showings in LA

We’ve had a very exciting week.

First Adrianna Aye grabbed a Best Actress nomination for her role in Beyond Staffing at the Feel The Reel Festival 2019.

Then the same film won Best Short at the Direct Monthly Online Film Festival. Today we learned that it has also been nominated for Best Short Film at the MoveMe Productions Film Festival in Belgium.

 

And then… we also learned that both Cats! and The Returning have been officially selected – without paying an entrance fee – to the prestigious World Film Fair, which will occur in November in Los Angeles in two weeks time.

This is great news for The Returning, especially, as it won 9 major awards and 8 minor awards in a short festival in 2017/2018. This will help us to reach an international market.

We have three feature film products in development. Do you want to join in the success?


Thus… With a Kiss Gets a Facelift

Back in 2014 we collaborated with our friends Jo Mama to create Thus… With A Kiss, starring excellent local actor, Alfred Loh. This time Fairil (star of The Returning) stayed behind the camera to direct this spooky thriller. 

With Beyond Staffing safely on its way out to the world, we decided to put a fresh coat of paint on this earlier masterpiece, which has benefited greatly from setting the black levels and contrast correctly with the latest tech.

The script was co-written by Paul Russell and a young American talent called Rhonnie Fordham, who has gone on to scripting feature films. We also borrowed some lines from a reputable bard, William Shakespeare.

Music provided by our very talented friend Adison Albert.

So settle in and prepare yourself for a dark, lonely night with our budding thespian, as he finds his rehearsal doesn’t quite go as planned.
