Today was our proudest day of the year. Firstly, we screened 'Dorothy's Theory' at our local Rio Cinema to an audience who had blown away the post-Halloween party Sunday morning cobwebs to join us and who received it with great warmth and love.
But the highlight for us was to celebrate the person who embodies the principles of everything we are about. From the beginning we knew we wanted to provide an opportunity for a child to be at the heart of a creative project that they could be proud of, something that would nourish their self-belief.
So it was with great pleasure that we could invite 9 year old Zazie to the stage, in front of her family, to collect her Rising Star Award. Moments like this make it all worthwhile.
Last night 'Dorothy's Theory' was nominated in 11 of the 16 categories, taking home 4 awards including Best Director, Audience Choice for Best Film and (this one makes us particularly proud) 9 year old Zazie won the Rising Star Award. We were also runner up for Best Film.
We're really pleased to have participated in the 48 Hour Film Project and are now keen to share Dorothy's Theory with a wider audience.
We've just secured a screening at our local cinema in Dalston, the beautiful Grade II listed Art Deco building, The Rio. It's a cast/crew/friends screening so no charge and you're very welcome to join us. Just drop one of us an email to let us know (either Steven or Mark @roomtwocreate.com) and please arrive promptly at 12:45pm.
Today was a big day for 'Dorothy's Theory' - our premiere screening at the Empire Haymarket in Piccadilly. Showing as part of the London 48 Hour Film Project, we were in fine company along with the 33 other films all made for the challenge. Having gone through the gruelling experience it was great to meet the other filmmakers and share war stories. We saw some really great films and it was a humbling experience - also great to see our work up on the big screen!
