Lawrence Lim, of Lightshaft Entertainment, has won a prestigious Honorable Mention Award from The Accolade Competition.


The award was given for Lawrence Lim’s exciting Short Film, ELEVEN, which challenged the continuous take shot for the purpose of narrative effect as opposed to a personal artistic choice. ELEVEN features exceptional production values having been filmed at Fox Studios Australia.

The short utilises impressive visual and special effects to assist in the storytelling with sound elements that pays homage to Michael Mann’s, HEAT. It also stars Robert Mammone, Socratis Otto & Diarmid Heidenreich.

“Winning an award such as this truly justifies one’s pursuits in filmmaking as a viable profession. Eleven was a passion project that had no chance at funding grants, so it was my responsibility to find the money. Thanks to the Australian Stock Exchange, I was able to increase the size of the budget seven fold and begin the arduous journey of forging, Eleven. The intention of the film was to challenge the age old continuous take shot for narrative effect, and I strongly believe we have achieved that and more. An enormous amount of credit must go to my loyal hardworking cast and crew. I couldn’t have done it without them.” Lawrence Lim (Writer/Producer/Director, ELEVEN)
