Comments excerpted from the Mofilm.com blog: 

Pepsi Short Film Video Competition

Brief: Tomorrow

Winner: Abe Forsythe, Australia

Video: ‘GPS’

Why it was chosen: 
It’s really apparent from this short that Abe is a seasoned filmmaker. The production quality is first class, it’s perfectly paced and the idea is strong and uplifting.

About Abe Forsythe: 
Abe is a director who has been making films since he was 16. He both directed and acted in the 2003 Australian production ‘Ned’. Last year he was a finalist in the ‘Tropfest’ short film festival, which had an audience of 120,000 people across Australia.

Abe said:
“I’m trying to move into commercials so I loved the challenge of making a short film to a specific brief. I really like the idea of cramming as much storytelling into a short amount of time as possible and still making you feel something. It was filmed in a day – I just wanted to see what would happen if I went out there with the camera and did it.”

The Pepsi Short Film winner has been awarded $10,000 and the chance to make an film with Avatar producer Jon Landau.  excerpted from: Mofilm.com blog
