Brighton Film Student Wins Award

News Image
A student at Brighton Film School has received an award as part of a small film crew that took part in an online, short film competition.
21-year-old Charlie Bentley is currently in his 2nd year of a 2-year Higher National Diploma course at the specialist film and moving image school located in central Brighton.
He was credited with the role of Production Manager for the film 'Closer'; a 10-minute short that won the First Job in Films Movie of the Month Competition sponsored by movieScope Magazine.
The award was the result of a public vote held online, in which thousands of fans voted for their favourite film, with 'Closer' emerging as the narrow favourite and winner.
'Closer' explores themes of loss and relationships and is the latest short production of BoxClever Films, a production company based in Chichester that Charlie and two friends established.
'Closer' was written, cast and set in a week and shot in just three days and is set in a quiet seaside town shortly after a young boy has lost his father.
Charlie Bentley said: "Were all set to shoot an entirely different story, when I became inspired to write something after I lost a ring that was given to me by my grandfather. I felt really bad about this loss and it became the inspiration and a symbol for the resulting story about a boy who has lost his father and his subsequent relationship with his Grandfather.
"We were so happy with how well the film was received and we were really pleased with the finished project and couldn’t have done it without the support of our friends and family and the skills I learnt whilst studying at Brighton Film School."
