The winners of the Jerwood Moving Image Awards have been announced, and I would really recommend spending a few minutes on their site, browsing the various finalists. There is some truly outstanding work to be seen, in a whole variety of styles.

Evensong

The three winning films in particular are excellent, and all three are downloadable, so get them while you can.

Sophie Clements’ ‘Evensong‘ is a gentle visual poem, using twilight landscapes and sophisticated light painting techniques. It’s “a melancholy celebration of dusk and stillness – an essence of something else”, and it’s oddly beautiful.

Procrastination

Readers of Creative Review might recognise this shot from Johnny Kelly’s animation ‘procrastination‘, which was on the front cover in September. It’s a clever and amusing “investigative and exploratory hands-on, gloves-off study into the practice of putting things ‘off'”.

Sea Change

Finally, Rosie Pedlow and Joe King’s ‘Sea Change‘ is a slow and thoughtful film, based on a long tracking shot repeated at different times of day. The caravan park depicted was bulldozed at the end of the season, so this is a documenting of a place and time.
