The decision of ISA judges’ committee was unanimous. “The Ghost”, awarded Best Film of the Month in the season of July of Independent Shorts Awards, was also a recipient of 5 Platinum Awards: Best Director (Male) (Garrick Hamm), Best Child/Young Actor (Felix Jamieson), Best Cinematography (Douglas Milsome), Best Original Story (Garrick Hamm), and Best Original Score (Joel Humlén).
An outstanding short film based on a true story of a boy’s search for his father, a footballing legend.
“The story is based on a biography, but I didn’t want to make a documentary, I wanted to heighten the dramatic story. I like to escape into a film, where you can disappear into someone’s little world, and for that moment put your own demons & problems aside. And when you come back out, and brush the popcorn off, you feel enriched, empowered to look at your own demons in a new brave light. I hope our film achieves a little of that too”, says British filmmaker Garrick Hamm.
Coming soon to a film festival near you.
