Six graduates of the Lincoln School of Media have just won a hat-trick of prizes at the 48 Hour Film Project with their film “GLOVE”. Joseph (Joey) Fallon, Jonathan Sankey, Emma Godley, Simon Dunn. Josh Roberts and Ashley Pay, who all graduated in 2010, entered the competition ‘on a whim’.
Competing against a wide range of film makers including 18-strong studio teams from around the UK, the graduates brainstormed on a Friday, filmed all day Saturday and edited up to the wire.
At the UK awards ceremony on 6th October 2012, at the Pheonix Theatre, London – Joseph Fallon won Best Director (with a £5000 Sony camera as prize). The team then won the Audience Award, in a landslide audience vote (prize 2 memberships to the Arts Club in Soho). Finally they won Overall UK Winner, with their film being screened, which then received a huge round of applause. The prize was a trip to Los Angeles next year and entry to the Worldwide competition.
They literally shot to stardom in a few breathless hours! Congratulations to them all.

About The 48 Hour Film Project http://www.48hourfilm.com/en/london/
“The 48 Hour Film Project’s mission is to advance filmmaking and promote filmmakers. Through its festival / competition, the Project encourages filmmakers and would-be filmmakers to get out there and make movies. The tight deadline of 48 hours puts the focus squarely on the filmmakers—emphasising creativity and teamwork skills. While the time limit places an unusual restriction on the filmmakers, it is also liberating by putting an emphasis on “doing” instead of “talking.”
