Spine-chiller takes town film award
Monday, 1st March 2010.
Less than four minutes of spine-chilling celluloid was enough to scoop the top prize in the first Made In Haverhill film competition.
At a gala final yesterday evening (Sunday) at Cineworld, the seven short-listed contenders were screened, as was the judging and scoring.
The winner was a short, sharp thriller called Red-Handed in which a newscaster told her colleague how she kept dreaming he was going to murder her, and which finished with a close-up of his hidden, blood-covered hand.
It was made by Jack Morgan, James Pilley and Hannah Jones, who received the winners' prize from Haverhill Cineworld manager and chairman of the judging panel, Paul Willden.
The competition, organised jointly with St Edmundsbury Borough Council, was the brainchild of the council's town centre manager for Haverhill Tina Hanks, who approached Cineworld about it.
Sponsored by Haverhill businesses DEja Vu, The Design Office, Access Control Solutions, Ipswich Building Society and Subway, the competition had an award for all finalists from the traditional golden envelope.
