Bald Monkeys 48 Hour Project Success

Anything Melbourne can do, Glasgow can do better. Following my recent review of The Ballad of Des and Mo, a feature film made in just 72 hours, I heard about a project for film-makers in Glasgow which challenged them to conceive and make a short film in just 48 hours for showing at the Glasgow Film Theatre.

The project was a great success with more than 40 entries which were met with great acclaim by audience members including industry professionals scouting for new talent.  A number of films garnered project awards including the prize for Best Special Effects which was won by Tu Regalo (Your Gift).  Tu Regalo was created by Bald Monkeys, led by David Brodie.  I suppose I should declare an interest here – David is one of my oldest and best friends and I’m so excited that his work is being recognised.  David and I went to college, then university together and his creativity has always been a source of inspiration for me.

Keep an eye out for the names David Brodie and Bald Monkeys in the future.  The 48 Hour Project is just the start of many great things for them.
