'Into the Surf' wins big at the One-Reeler Short Film Awards in Los Angeles!

Coming off the back of Palm Springs Shortfest 2015, we were kindly invited to take part in the One-Reeler Short Film Awards in Los Angeles. Over 100 short films battled it out in nine different award categories and Into the Surf won not just one but three awards!
 
* BEST MUSIC
* BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY
* AWARD OF EXCELLENCE
 
Huge congrats to the whole team but especially Mark Adair (composer) and Brett Turnbull (DP). Everyone else can feel equally proud about the Award of Excellence. We all knew we were excellent but it's nice for somebody else to notice every now and again.
