Winner's acceptance speech by Victoria Mapplebeck for Missed Call in the Short Form Programme category

VICTORIA MAPPLEBECK:  Oh my god.  I just want to say thank you to Adam Gee, who commissioned this.  He is at Little Dot Studios, commissioned it for Real Stories.  This was a tricky film, as you can see, because I'm both director and parent to the fantastic Jim, and that meant I needed ongoing support from this fantastic dream team of commissioners and editors and producers.

I think it's proof -- I hope the film is proof that small is beautiful, because I shot the whole thing on that phone, and when we needed some end credit composer, Jim took his phone out and composed the end credits, and even better gave me the rights for a pair of trainers.

So, yes, I just want to say -- I think you deserve it every bit as much as we do.  Jim is the star of the show.  It's hard being in a film at 15 and he did brilliantly.  So thank you.
