Making a big Short Film that is praised by the industry and the critics can mean a ticket to the big Leagues for many… and if that Short Film gets an Oscar, you are a lock for the next gig of yours. The nominees waiting to get that vote of confidence were: Oded Binnun and Mihal Brezis for Aya, Michael Lennox and Ronan Blaney for Boogaloo and Graham, Hu Wei and Julien Féret for Butter Lamp (La Lampe au Beurre de Yak), Talkhon Hamzavi and Stefan Eichenberger for Parvaneh and Mat Kirby and James Lucas for The Phone Call.
And the Oscar goes to Talkhon Hamzavi and Stefan Eichenberger for Parvaneh and Mat Kirby and James Lucas for The Phone Call.
What do you think? Are you happy The Phone Call won the Academy Award 2015 for Best Live Action Short Film? Let me know in the comments section, and follow me on Twitter for more coverage.
