Since its release in April 2012 the short film Titanic Love has continued to be nominated for and win plenty of awards and that trend continues a full three years after it’s original release.
Titanic Love, a short film by Darlaston producer Mark Pressdee, was filmed in November 2011 on and around the canals of Birmingham and it’s since picked up awards across the globe. On Thursday 12th November 2015 it could further add to that award list as it’s been nominated in three categories at the Royal Television Society Midlands Awards at a ceremony at the National Motor Cycle Museum in Birmingham.
The second nomination in the Best Acting Performance (Male) category goes to Alex Edwardson, who plays Jack. Jack is annoyed with his girlfriend’s obsession with ‘the boat’ but wants an easy life so goes along with it.
The final nomination is for director Mark Pressdee in the Best New Talent (Writer/Director/Producer) category. Inspired by a Titanic exhibition in the Black Country, Mark has picked up on the Midlands connections with the Titanic story to a short comedy that delivewrs a contemporary spin on the famous story.
You can check on the success of the film at the awards on the official Titanic Love website or the movie’s Facebook page and you can find out about any other future screenings of the short 23 minute short or it potential release on DVD.
Great to see Birmingham on film again and with such a Birmingham based cast and crew too. The movie seems to be making a huge impression worldwide, which can only be good news for the city.
Best wishes to the Titanic Love nominees at the RTS Midlands awards, I hope they continue to add to their growing award list.
