Gods Own Country Wins Prizes at Edinburgh, Berlin and Sundance.



I am very pleased to see that one of the first feature films I completed  here in South Australia since emigrating from the UK has done so well in the festival circuit . Highlights of  the awards picked up  by Gods Own Country so far are:

  • Jury Prize for Best film in Berlin,
  • Best British feature film at Edinburgh
  • Best Director for Francis Lee at Sundance

This weekend I’m flying out to the Melbourne IFF  to catch it while it is playing locally. More info below the trailer



I worked on it as foley artist and foley editor, alongside Duncan Campbell (Foley recordist) at the SA film corp foley studios. It was an exceptionally challenging gig but very rewarding. The film has front title music, no other score until  well into the final reel and the lead is not a big speaker. There is wall to wall foley. Challenging scenes involved making sounds for dry wall building, delivering lambs, driving a cow into a trailer etc etc.. I’ve written about the foley sessions in an article downloadable here

You can buy tickets from the film website here. It  is currently on  the world wide festival circuit and is released in America in October
