We have some news out of the UK … WE WON!!!!!!
Walking Shadows Vol. 1, on it’s final festival outing, has won BEST WEB SERIES at the 2023 Unrestricted View Film Festival in London, UK over the weekend!!! Amazing!!!
Pictured is Walking Shadows Vol. 1 cast member Ren Ruidi with UVFF Festival Director, James Wren with our award front and centre at the The Hen & Chickens Theatre after the Awards Ceremony. We were so delighted that Ren could represent our cast & crew in person – AND SHE GOT TO ACCEPT AN AWARD FOR US!!! YAY TEAM!!!
(We have decided that Ren is our good luck charm, as both times she has repped the series for us overseas for this series, we have won awards, so you have a job for life with us Ren, just saying)
And so, with this wonderful thing, the festival run for Walking Shadows Vol. 1 comes to an end. And what a way to finish our time on the festival circuit! Huge thanks to the impressive UVFF Jury, which consisted of an amazing list of UK & US industry people including Executives from Free@Last TV (who produce a swathe of original UK drama including hit show Agatha Raisin), screenwriters, producers, directors, talent agents, academics and actors (including one of our favourites, Richard Glover). And even more thanks to James Wren & the UVFF team for being just plain awesome, for putting together such an excellent festival and for welcoming Ren so warmly into the fold.
Finally – congratulations to our entire Walking Shadows Vol. 1 team for such a successful film festival run for the season!! 7 Awards, 20 nominations and 15 official selections!! Amazing!! Kudos to all the 2021 Full Time Acting Course Graduates from Howard Fine Acting Studio Australia for giving their all and finding a way to step up when shooting this season with Creator/Director Sally McLean in the Melbourne lockdowns & thanks to Phil Hayden at the studio for commissioning the series in the first place.
We are gearing up to release Walking Shadows Vol. 2 later this month, and so the journey continues …
So thrilled. So grateful. Well done all!!
