'Centigrade' wins Leos


I'm thrilled to share the news that a certain special film has won five Leos just a few days ago here in Vancouver. The Leo Awards honor the best in British Columbian television and film production every year.

Centigrade is a short thriller that took home five of its seven nominations. The film has been recognized in several film festivals and is now qualified to enter the Academy Awards!

Congratulations to everyone involved in the making of this film! Our special congratulations go to Jonathan Tyrrell, the picture editor, who also happens to be the person who encouraged me to start blogging, is the designer of this weblog and is our son-in-law, the father of our delightful grand-daughters.

Centigrade is about a man stuck in a trailer and desperately searching for a means to get out before he burns inside the vehicle. Now we can hardly wait to see this film, though judging from this Teaser Trailer, it may be a bit too exciting for me!

Looks good. And I suppose if it were called "Celsius" people would assume it was a biopic.

Mr Zip, did you see in one of the articles that the original script was called 'Fahrenheit'?

No, I missed that. I wonder if they changed it for the reason I suggested, or to avoid confusion with "Fahrenheit 451"?

Mr Zip, my guess is the second one.
