On the 22nd of February 2015 Mat Kirkby and James Lucas’ wildest dreams came true when they received the Academy Award for Short Film – Live Action.
We are genuinely humbled and are forever grateful to the Academy for awarding us with THE greatest filmic honour.
This award is dedicated to the incredible Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Edward Hogg and Prunella Scales. And then also all of our crew that believed in us and our script. You guys brought it to life with your dedication and professionalism.
We would also like to thank our friends and family surrounding us who supported us in so many different ways.
Finally, our Oscars are dedicated to the unsung heroes around the world that man crisis phone lines and volunteer as “listeners”. Without pay they deal with incredibly complex and delicate predicaments and, in our opinion, demonstrate innate goodness via empathy and compassion. Like mothers Kirkby and Lucas, we love you all.
Thank you! XXXXX
