Bryant wins at Flickerfest
Press release from Luscious International
Luscious International director Sam Bryant picked up a couple of the major awards at Flickerfest short film festival last night. His short film ‘GPS’ won the SBS Television Award where SBS selects one film out of the entire festival to broadcast on SBS television. The film also won Best Editing craft.
GPS is a story about Thompson – a seven year old boy who has one dream in life, to be the voice of a GPS navigator. But unfortunately Thompson has a deliberating lisp. For years he tries to forget his dream, but he can’t get it out of his mind. When he auditions at Gusto GPS Navigators, he embarks on an impossible journey that sends him into a spiral of dispair – no one wants to hire a GPS navigator with a lisp.
Since the film was made almost a year ago, it has enjoyed success at festivals all over the world, including Cannes, LA Shorts and ADFEST.
Sam and Luscious would like to thank Mark Burnett and the entire team at The Editors for their contribution to this film. A huge thank you also goes to the rest of the cast and crew who made this film possible.
