Short film competition Homespun Yarns has announced the winner of its fifth competition is Steve Moss, with his film, ‘If (Girlfriend Deluxe)…’.

This year the brief was ‘If’ and filmmakers were invited to enter a short film idea that began with, If.
The screening night took place at London’s Fabric nightclub. The winning film, set in a dystopian future, ‘If (Girlfriend Deluxe)…’ is the story of a middle aged man who takes advantage of a future where sex robots can be ordered online.  With a process that isn’t as smooth running as the protagonist had hoped. 

Winner Steve Moss, a copywriter at Publicis said: “I felt so lucky to be chosen and even luckier to be the winner.  It was certainly a challenge to make a film on such a tight budget but so many brilliant people got behind me and made it possible.  This is my first step towards a life with less ads in!”

The 2018 competition was in association with Wave and Panavision with support from, Kodak, Sohonet, Slingshot and Performance Media Insurance.  Finalists were given £1500 budget as well as support in production, post-production and editing, allowing them to work with, and learn from, some of the industry’s leading talent. 

Alice Clarke, Homespun EP said: “every year I’m blown away by how the film community comes together to make these films and how emerging talent throughout the industry work together to create such brilliant quality films.  This year was no exception, the vote was incredibly close and Steve is a very worthy winner.”
