SCTVawards-Best Community Event filmThis video. produced by Rob James,  was Joint winner in Best Community Event film. Rob writes: Presenters Lola Royle and Holly Thomas take you through a celebration of wearable art at Art Couture Painswick, Sunday 15th July 2012.”

David Pearson of award-winning Arturi films and a judge for SCTV, said of the Art Couture film: “Sense of humour and fun about this lively event, the report capture the irreverence.”

Filmmaker Rob James said of his winning entry to Stroud People: “I was very pleased to hear that I’d won the Best Community Event Film award, along with my friends at Cordial AV. I was asked to help cover the Wearable Art Festival that morning, so I really didn’t know what to expect. It turned out to be a great day – very vibrant and busy with dozens of creative pieces on display, all very varied and, not forgetting, lots of live music too. Credit must also go to presenters Lola Royle and Holly Thomas for their hard work arranging and conducting the interviews. I think it’s very important to recognise what we have on our doorstep and support local events and especially local and emerging talent. Art Couture Painswick is a great showcase for amateur and professional designers and artists – I hope they ask me back again this year.” Photo: Winning design by Kirsten Fletcher.
