It was third time lucky, Playing Burton won the BAFTA

Well it’s all in the title isn’t it? We were all delighted when it was announced that Playing Burton won the Welsh BAFTA in the 2014 category of Best Film/Single Drama. Even if I say so myself, it is a terrific film. Headed up beautifully by director Wyndham Price combined with a fantastic performance by Josh Richards as Burton. It’s a winning combination and the judges did well to recognise it. This was shot on a RED ONE with the original sensor and really has a lovely feel to it. We used old Nikon lenses which allow the flares and imperfections to add a certain texture that suited this subject well. It has been on Sky Arts about 100 times but never had a theatrical release, it would be lovely if this gave it enough of a push to get it there as it really is a big screen film.
