Dennis Gassner- Winner's Acceptance Speech, Production Design, EE British Academy Film Awards in 2020

2 February 2020

Winner's acceptance speech by Dennis Gassner for 1917 in the Production Design category  

DENNIS GASSNER:  Oh, wow.  It's a lot better than standing in mud in a trench.

This film was about camaraderie, and -- oh, gosh.  Who do you thank?  I want to thank everybody who worked on this film.  I mean, everybody.  It was an amazing project.  The art department was unbelievable.  

And I want to thank my old friends, Sam Mendes and Roger Deakins.  Without them and their passion for this film, it wouldn't have got made.  It's been amazing.  

I want to thank my family, my friends, and my beautiful wife.  Thank you.
