The winners to this year’s Sony PROduction Awards have been announced. The awards entries received 10,000 votes from the public, with the top 15 films from these votes then being judged by a panel of filmmakers and industry experts.


There were three categories for the PROduction Awards 2014 – creative, factual and student – and in total 450 films were submitted across these categories. Entrants could either create a new film or share an existing film of up to five minutes. It was then up to a public vote which closed on 7th April. The panel, including filmmakers Philip Bloom and Nino Leitner and industry figures such as Rory Peck’s Molly Clarke.


Although the awards were open to entries from across the globe, the winners from two out the three categories were from the UK.


The winners are:


Scarecrow in Purgatory, Oliver Clubb, UK (the creative category)

“A simple concept well executed. Solid direction, camerawork and sound – it ticks all the boxes technically. The central performance, tied in with the script, kept me watching and made me smile. A nice original short,” says Philip Bloom.




That Time, Benjamin Chesterton, UK (the factual category)  (pictured above)

“It is a beautiful documentary that draws us in to the life of a young mother and her son and then reveals the story of her struggle with HIV and the child she was forced to give away. It’s wonderfully shot and crafted with some well used emotional slow-motion shots that disclose more about those portrayed,” says Nino Leitner.




No Good Deed, Michael O’Neill, Australia (the student category)

“It’s a nicely-acted, well-shot drama that's been put together effectively – that's not easy to pull off,” Molly Clarke.



Each winner received a NEX-FS700RH 4K Super 35mm camera and a Sony UWP-D wireless microphone kit. They also received access to Sony’s cloud-based video production platform Ci.


The three winning films will be showcased alongside all 15 shortlisted films at the Sony World Photography Awards exhibition at Somerset House in London, which takes place from 1st May to the 18th May.
