One of the winners of Saturday night’s Winchester Short Film Festival awards ceremony, is already setting his sights for the future very high indeed.

James Newman lives in Highcliffe, works at the Railway and studies Film Production at the University of Winchester.

He won the Winchester Short Film Festival Award ‘Best Music Video’ category and has had his work shown at the Williamsburg International Film Fest in New York.

He’s now in the process of making an Independent TV sitcom pilot with the hopes of sending it to the New York International TV Fest.

James told Winchester Today that the pilot is based in Winchester, and revolves around the historic aspect of the town being in a Darwinian tone of squatters in a house.

“We’re really passionate about this project and hope others will be too.”

James has a Kickstarter project that can be found here!
