The SOFIE Trophy

A big Fed Ex box got delivered today, and inside, carefully packaged, was our SOFIE Trophy, the award “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” won from The Short Film Awards last November.

It’s rather big and has weight. And shines impressively in the light.

“The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre” won for Outstanding Technical Work in a Short Film. This awards the director (me), the cinematographer (Jason Chua), the editor (Stolis Hadjicharalambous), the sound designer (Todd Maki), and the VFX/color artist (Austin Lepri).

Having a category awarding “Outstanding Technical Work” seems to be unique to The Short Film Awards. I love that this categorization made it possible for the award to officially honor so many particular collaborators.

Ed suggested I take some pictures that show how the trophy catches the sunlight…

… and before long I got a little carried away, channeling my inner Annie Leibovitz …

Her final perch will be in a private corner of our home. I share this pic because I liked how the shadow appears more bent back than the statuette from this angle.
