George Turner, who is currently studying on the BA (Hons) in Film, was nominated as a semi-finalist for the Best Experimental UK Short Film in the London International Motion Pictures Awards (LIMPA) 2019.
The film follows the journey of a young photographer, asking are our passions always worth pursuing? When does enthusiasm become obsession? Is independence an asset or a hindrance?
George explained the background to the film: ‘The project was a joint effort between myself and Lee Reynolds – a friend and colleague for many years; our film collaborations began at our Sixth Form College (now known as USP). It was shot back in January 2017.
‘What is most interesting is LIMPA’s recognition of our film; I submitted the film for competition in August 2018. It was the only competition that the film was submitted to. In early May I received a notification that we had been shortlisted for Official Selection and, a week later, Semi-Finals. We were honoured to have been selected.’
Seclusion received a screening last week, 24 May 2019, at Regent’s University in London, as part of the awards festival. However you may view the film via the YouTube link here.
