My first feature as a Head of Department: Pinch Directed by Jeffory Asselin, cinematography by Antony Webb, recently won the award for Best Feature at the WA Screen Awards - a heist that NO ONE would have predicted ! This was a low budget film, with some very large challenges including a car explosion, a meth lab, an interior roof studio build and plenty of tricky locations to transform. I am so proud of it's success, it was up against commercial favourites Paper Planes, Kill Me Three Times and The Reckoning. As Jeff says in the write up (linked below)
“Those three movies would have had a catering budget that was bigger than our entire budget for Pinch”
Goes to show what determination, passion, relentlessness and a bit of heart can achieve!
