Brooklyn, NY, August 10, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Transformation Techniques, Inc. is happy to announce that its film, "Not As Tough As You Think," was a winner of the award for Best Dramatic Short Story at the Art Is Alive Film Festival. The decision was announced at the festival’s award ceremony on Sunday, August 4.
"Not As Tough As You Think" is in the Narrative Short Film category, approximately 18 minutes long. The film is about how pressure and pride can converge; and when they do, bad things can happen. The story takes place over a day in the lives of four teens, where a series of bad decisions and poor judgment lead to a senseless act of gun violence. The film neither demonizes the characters nor trivializes the impact of the tragic events that unfold in the story.
Given the destructive events related to gun violence which recently occurred, audiences are emotionally gripped by the film’s relevance and timeliness. Though extremely proud of all his films, “Not As Tough As You Think” has a special place in screenwriter Ian Wilson's heart. It’s the most ambitious of all the films he has written and produced. Having a seasoned director, Ade Richardson, and cinematographer, Sung Rae Cho, helped to deliver quality production value. However, it’s the subject, gun-violence that makes NATAYT, relevant and timely. The film is distributed by Human relations Media, Mt. Cisco, New York. (www.hrmvideo.com)
