"Muse" Awarded "Best Film Editing"

Muse from Edmond Terakopian on Vimeo.

In the best traditions of film award acceptance speeches, I never expected to get this award.

My first ever short film, Muse, was invited to be shown at the International Independent Short Film Festival Donetsk 2009, held on July 30 in the Ukraine.

I'm overjoyed to say that I just received an email from the organisers saying that it has won this award!

The following message was sent along with the certificate:

"Dear Edmond,

please, find attached file with certificate your movie Muse is awarded and accept congratulations from me and festival juri consisted of young independent filmmakers. Hope you will enjoy it!
Also Festival Committee has interviewed attendees about all films screened and your film received good feedback: spectators like beautiful visual pictures of London, play by the actress, sound. Also your film has been first five ranked of 16 participated films by audience voting.
Thank you again for participation and all the best for your filmmaking!
Hope to see new films from you to invite to participate in next festival sessions.
Best regards from Ukraine, Sergiy."

I am absolutely overjoyed by this. I'd really like to take this opportunity to thank Stef for all her patience and support during filming, Enrico Blatti and the Blue Chamber Orchestra for the fabulous soundtrack, Canon for the loan of the 5D MkII, Apple for supplying Final Cut Studio and Rode for supplying the microphones.
