STUDENT FILM MONTH:
Stanley Pickle dir. Vicky Mather (2010)

Our twelfth film in Student Film Month is a the multi-award winning short ‘Stanley Pickle’ directed by Vicky Mather (2011). Studying Fine Art at London’s Kingston University and then going on to studying at the National Film and Television School, Vicky uses her photographic design background and filmic techniques to creative a visually striking and unique style.

STANLEY PICKLE (2010) is a short pixilation film shot entirely on a stills camera on 2 sets and 2 locations at the NFTS. The film premièred on to the festival circuit in 2010 at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, where it picked up the McLaren Award for New British Animation, followed by Oscar qualification at the US première LA Shorts where the film won Best Experimental. After a whirlwind journey through 2011/12 greeting diverse festival audiences worldwide winning 33 awards, screening on Virgin Atlantic Flights, broadcast in France, Spain and the US, being part of BAFTA Brits to Watch and distributed on iTunes and Amazon, the film is finally available to view online.

We hope you enjoy.

Student Film Month
In celebration of student filmmakers everywhere and our Student Film In Transit competition, we’ve launched Student Film Month at Cannes in a Van. Every day throughout February, we’re publishing a student film from somewhere in the student film-sphere. It might be a student classic like the 1965 long-short Boy and Bicycle from a young Ridley Scott… an award-winning masterpiece… or a film directed by you.

We’ll be publishing a wealth of moving images from the infamous to the obscure, each film worthy of it’s place on our humble little stage. So what’s stopping you picking up that mouse, tablet or phone and sending us your own student short? You never know where the big yellow van might take you!

We’re even hosting a special Student Film Screen Social very soon in London so look out for more on that by joining our mailing list.

It’s simple to submit…
Email us at play@screensocial.com and tell us what you’d like to show, then fill in the Screen Social submission form (please include details of production) and we’ll do the rest!

We look forward to screening your film.
