Back in November, STS was thrilled to announce the optioning of Lee O’Connor’s short, The Brightest Star.
Last month, we provided STS readers with a glimpse of the produced film (still available for viewing at https://vimeo.com/129374340).
But now we can add additional news to the mix. Brightest Star has been chosen as the Best Indie Film winner for the Top Shorts Online Film festival.
Congrats to both Lee and Grant. Well done!
About the writer, Lee O’Connor:
I am a writer from the UK for the screen and theatre. I have written several shorts which are in various stages of production. I am currently in the process of writing a feature film which will be shot in L.A early next year. Alongside that, I am in the process of working on two feature films which the genre and subject will remain a mystery.
I like to tackle subject matters that will pull on the heart strings, educate and open a your eyes. Although these genres are at the opposite ends of the spectrum I predominately write drama and sci-fi. I believe you write with what you know, so be yourself and don’t try to mimic another film or script you have read, create your own voice. I am reachable via email: lee.a.oconnor “AT” gmail
