Last year, Getty Images approached Short & Sweet with a unique brief. They wanted to illustrate the many ways in which their immense archive could be used. Julia Stephenson (Short & Sweet Founder) conceived the Getty Images and Short & Sweet Short Film Challenge. Short & Sweet identified a selection of talented, undiscovered film makers. Ten Directors were chosen and given an opportunity to pitch. Four very different ideas were picked and those four Directors got to make their films come to life. The Directors chosen were Laurie Hill, The directing team Big Red Button, Jasmin Jodry and Ian Mackinnon with his directing partner Dominic Parker. They had 3 months to complete the films and were each given £1000.00. The films were judged by Eliza Williams (Creative Review), Bill Bungay ( CD BMB), Al Maccuish (CD Mother Vision), James Spence (CD BBC) Graham Fink (CD MC Saatchi) and Matthew Butson (Vice President, Hulton Archive). Photograph of Jesus by Laurie Hill won first prize.
Photograph Of Jesus by Laurie Hill has already won numerous awards.
