Cannes nomination for film school for fifth year run­ning

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

The Alan Di­men­sion was nom­i­nated in this year’s Ciné­fon­da­tion short film se­lec­tion at the fes­ti­val which ran from May 11May 22.

It was cho­sen from 2,300 works which were sub­mit­ted by film schools from all over the world and is one of only four an­i­mated films out of 18 - the re­main­der are works of fic­tion.

Jac Clinch, di­rec­tor of The Alan Di­men­sion, said: “It is a huge hon­our for me and the rest of the NFTS team to have our film nom­i­nated at Cannes.

“I am ex­tremely grate­ful for the op­por­tu­nity that the Na­tional Film and Tele­vi­sion School has given me to re­alise this vi­sion.”

On the NFTS web­site,, it states The Alan Di­men­sion was made by a group of grad­u­at­ing NFTS stu­dents in­clud­ing Jac Clinch, di­rec­tor and co-writer, Mil­lie Marsh, pro­ducer, Jonathan Har­bot­tle, cowriter, Miles Ridg­way, cin­e­matog­ra­pher, Declan O’Brien, pro­duc­tion de­signer, Anna Ben­net­tSquire, pro­duc­tion man­ager, Xanna WardDixon, ed­i­tor, Luke Hardisty and Matt Moyes on vis­ual ef­fects, Justin Dolby, sound ed­i­tor and re-record­ing Mixer, Tim Mor­rish, com­poser and Robin Yoo­jin Rhee, on­line ed­i­tor and colour grader.

The eight minute colour film tells the story of Alan, who has been be­towed with the di­vine gift of pre­cog­ni­tion.

But his gift is not all it is cracked up to be as he can barely fore­see what is for break­fast.

And the only per­son on earth who un­der­stands Alan is pack­ing her bags to leave – Wendy has had enough of be­ing mar­ried to mankind’s next step in cog­ni­tive evo­lu­tion.

Will Alan re­alise in time that see­ing the fu­ture has blinded him to his present?

The Na­tional Film and Tele­vi­sion School is based in Bea­cons­field.

Start­ing at 9am from The Royal Bromp­ton Hos­pi­tal in Chelsea and end­ing at Hare­field Hos­pi­tal in north west London, chal­lengers can walk, run or cy­cle a route that fol­lows the canal through Wem­b­ley, Hayes and the Colne Val­ley in Buck­ing­hamshire.He said: “I am re­ally look­ing for­ward to cy­cling in the Grand Canal Chal­lenge - not only is it good ex­er­cise for me, I’m rais­ing money to pay for vi­tal equip­ment for Royal Bromp­ton and Hare­field Hos­pi­tals.

“I hope other cy­clists, run­ners and walk­ers will join me. At the fin­ish there will be a bar­be­cue and beer fes­ti­val, so it will be a fun day out.”

Heart trans­plant pa­tient Cliff James from Wad­des­don will be among those tak­ing part, walk­ing half the route with his fam­ily.

Cliff had a heart trans­plant at Hare­field Hos­pi­tal in 2014 when he was 52 years old. He said: “My life has im­proved so much. For the first time in my life I have a nor­mal beat­ing heart. My en­ergy lev­els came back and my breath­ing is fine. “I am so grate­ful to my donor and his fam­ily for my sec­ond chance.” For in­for­ma­tion about the Grand Canal Chal­lenge visit www.rb­hchar­
