NEW SHOOTS: FILMMAKERS WINNER:

David McShane (Solar Plexus): “It was wonderful to win the latest edition of New Shoots. I became a member of Shooting People last year and found some of my first jobs through the site, so this is just an added bonus! The prize is super exciting as it means I can continue to push my latest project forward using all the great advice, equipment and cash to make it as good as can be. Making independent animations can often be a slow, laborious prospect, so to have this support is fuel to keep making things. I look forward to seeing all the opportunities that come from Shooting People in the next year!”
