The Establishing Shot: See - Alesha Dixon's Short Film Victims

Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Friday, August 26, 2011

VictimsLast week I received an email from Maxim McDonald Film Producer and Publicist Extraordinaire. Maxim let me know about a short film that he had just helped make called Victims. Which was made for the Film London Best of Boroughs (BoBs) competition. In case you haven’t heard about the BoBs there is some info at the bottom of the page.

With a wealth of talent involved Victims is a clever and powerful short story that plays on stereotyping and topical social issues. I don't want to give too much away about the story as you should really watch this 15 minute gem.

And I am not the only one who thinks that it is special as it has been nominated to represent Hammersmith and Fulham in the Film London Best of Boroughs. To see it head over to: - After watching it - if you like it please support this little gem BY VOTING FOR IT.


Victims stars Hattie Morahan (Sense and Sensibility, Outnumbered) and Briana Corrigan (Beautiful South) and has singer Alesha Dixon is an associate producer.

When a local journalist arrives on a council estate to present a disabled, have-a-go hero with a Bravery Award, she inadvertently uncovers a tragic secret.

Film London Best of Boroughs
Film London recognises the importance of supporting emerging talent, as well as actively encouraging film-making and film activity in local communities.

In collaboration with the Mayor of London, and working in partnership with the capital's local authorities, LBFFC aims to discover grassroots talent, stimulate local film-making and develop new skills. The participating boroughs run and fund the schemes; with Film London providing financial support, dedicated advice and resources. This year, 22 boroughs are taking part.

A key part of the scheme, showcasing the shorts made through the London Borough Film Fund Challenge, is the Best of Boroughs Film Awards (aka the BoBs). This year 11 films produced through LBFFC are shortlisted for the BoBs Awards this year. You can watch the films and vote for your favourite to win the Best of Boroughs Audience Award until 31 August.
