TCB Rising Star Award 2012!
I question the validity of any award that has been won by Noel Clarke. I don’t like the fact that Noel Clarke refers to himself as a ‘BAFTA award winning actor/writer/director’. I don’t like Noel Clarke. Or 2012 nominee, Adam Deacon.
So, I thought I’d set up an alternative ‘Rising Star’ award. Not sponsored by Orange but also not a consumerist orgy. I have searched long and hard to find some international filmmakers, of varying age and experience, who I think deserve the chance to be recognised. This award might not carry the same prestige as the BAFTA but hopefully it will open people’s eyes to the fact that there are better filmmakers out there than the man responsible for 126.96.36.199 (and then give them some money to make ‘em!).
The nominees are as follows (click on their name for an example of their work):
Please get voting! The poll will close 15th of March (aka The Ides of March)!
