David Gould turned three of four nominations into prizes at the weekend’s Australian Screen Industry Network (ASIN) Awards on the Gold Coast.
Gould was nominated with his short Tomorrow’s Dream, which was a winner at Tropfest early this year and played last month’s Armageddon Film Festival in Auckland.
Gould, whose indie feature The Cure released in 2014, was one of four filmmakers in this year’s SPP Big Pitch at SPADA last Thursday. He pitched his second feature Stolen Senses, for which he’s recently made a concept short. Although he missed out at SPADA to Aroha Awarau’s Whaea Ros, Gould was very happy for the opportunity to lay out his wares and network.
At ASIN, the script for Stolen Senses was nominated in the screenplay category, but missed out on the award. All three of the nominations for Tomorrow’s Dream converted, with Gould bringing home Best Producer and Best Short Film. He also took the runner-up award for the Highest Achievement in Directing gong.
The Australian Screen Industry Network Awards ran Saturday 26 November.
