Opening Shots

Cameraphone Film Competition

This year’s winner is Julia Horsfall, who assembled wonderful moving images to accompany a song by Panic at the Disco. Great interpretive work that follows the structure and meaning of the song. A simple concept and an excellent eye for movement. Great work Julia! You can see her work here.
