Jazz Virk and Brendan O'Neill of Birmingham based indie film production team Film Division are delighted that the pro bono project they did to help growth disabled student Carsum Din has now received 2 awards.
The 8 minute film Wilhelm the Dwarf Vampire which was shot at historic Aston Hall in just 1 day received Best Overall Media Production Coventry University and Best Degree Show Media Production Coventry University 2011.
Producer Brendan O'Neill commented:
"We're delighted for Carsum and hoping that the film will now do well on the festival circuit. I'm told that Carsum has now received interview offers from various places and even the offer of an acting role from a Pinewood based production company so we're doubly pleased to have been able to help.
I'd like to thank all the cast and crew for giving up their time to help with special thanks to Gurminder Kenth and her staff at Aston Hall and Stewart Addison of Pannyhire (www.Pannyhire.co.uk) for providing the camera equipment."
The film starred starred George Appleby (Being Human, Fanatic) alongside Coventry based actress Joanne Ryan with Birmingham based Sezer Unver and Dean Bamford in supporting roles.
