For almost the last year I’ve been developing ideas for Only Child, a short film about shared grief, based on the Bible story of David and Bathsheba. I entered Only Child into the Pitch competition back in September, and was selected as one of the ten finalists in November. But it was last week that I finally was able to present the idea to a panel of judges at Pinewood Studios. Amazingly, Only Child was unanimously chosen as the winner against some seriously strong competition! The Pitch team put together this short video with my initial reactions to winning, as well as a bit more about the idea.
I’ll be blogging more about Only Child in the coming weeks and months leading up to shooting, hopefully in June – so watch this space!
