It was Mark’s second short film – his debut, When I stand on the Moon, won best international short film at the Rincon Film Festival in Puerto Rico in 2011.

“It is fantastic. I’m really chuffed becuse it is quite a well known film festival,” said Mark.

“We have also got into the Fright Night Film Festival at the end of July so hopefully we might pick up something there,” said Mark.

He said there is about another 15 film festivals he has applied for but is waiting to hear back.

“I won an award for my first film. For this film to win an award as well is great. I’m proud, I think it makes everything worthwhile because it is someone recognising your work.”

He works part time in Curry’s in Bury, but has just finished four months working as art department assistant for the Morse prequel series Endeavour.
