That's great! I see that you shot on the F900 - I wonder if this was the first HD-shot feature to win those awards. Did you screen digitally?

Thanks guys.

Someone at the festival also mentioned they thought it might be the first HD feature to win. Would be interesting if it was. If it's true I'm sure Sony will be giddy. The directors and I did an on camera testimonial up there for Sony and they were excited BEFORE we won.

We decided not to screen digitally. We thought that HD shown digitally looked a LITTLE too artificial and really liked the aesthetic and organic feeling film brought. Furthermore, not having a 35 print would limit our festival screenings as most do not project HD...at best it's usually digibeta. As a matter of fact, the film is off to Berlinale in a couple weeks and they indicated they wouldn't take HD for projection. I'm very happy with the print and spent much time at EFilm and Deluxe getting it just right.

Congratulations Eric.

Could you tell me the name of the film, there are so many winners mentioned on the press release, I am not sure which one is the one you shot.
