The red carpet experience at the BAFTAS
Deckchair director Mark Gill's film 'The Voorman Problem' with Tom Hollander and Martin Freeman was nominated in the Best Short category for 2013 BAFTA awards.
Being BAFTA-nominated consisted of a full weekend of events, with the entire team behind 'Full Time' in attendance: Mark Gill, Baldwin Li, Alistair Connolly and Harry Otto Brünjes. On the Friday evening at BAFTA HQ, Piccadilly, was a special reception and screening of the nominated films in the short category. Followed on the Saturday by the famous nominees party hosted at Aspreys on New Bond St - a red carpet occasion in itself - rubbing shoulders with the stars... George Clooney, Ben Affleck, Marrion Cotillard... to name but a few. Then on the Sunday, the big occasion at the Royal Opera House, hosted by Stephen Fry and live on the BBC.
Driven to the red carpet we met Zoe Ball and Sir Alan Parker in the rain, before quickly moving inside to a champagne reception to settle the nerves. The time came as the envelopes were read out. The cameraman kneels next to you pointing it in your face! It really is as nerve racking as you could expect. Unfortunately 'The Voorman Problem' lost out to Lynne Ramsey's 'The Swimmer'. A glorious movie if you haven't seen it. Made for the summer Olympics, and many congratulations to her!
The Voorman Problem, has since also been nominated for an OSCAR!
