Congratulations to Oliver Cowton, filmmaking LSFM postgraduate, who won Best Documentary at the Midlands Movies Awards 2018 (on 3rd March). Oli was originally commissioned by Channel 4’s Random Acts to direct and produce Portrait (2017). It is a 3-minute short film and he said: It’s a great encouragement to receive this award from Midlands Movies.
Making films is always hard work. But I was lucky to have an amazing team, mainly made of staff and students at the University of Lincoln, that helped bring this story to life.
Huge thanks to everyone involved and the anonymous contributor who was willing to share their story with me.
