Media Boomtown is proud to announce that the company’s debut documentary “Pure Imagination: The Secret of Comics Creation,” was named “Best Short Documentary” at the Prometheus Film Festival.
“Pure Imagination” was one of six films honored during the festival’s first annual awards dinner Saturday August, 28th, 2010.
In its first year, the Prometheus film festival featured over 30 films ranging in style, genre and length from filmmakers in York, PA and surrounding areas.
Judging for the awards was done by a panel of 15 different judges with 5 judges rating a category of films in the following categories: Screenplay, Acting, Editing, Cinematography, and Audio/Soundtrack.
Judges described the film as: “Inspirational.” “Well Done.” “Nicely put together.” “Moving.”
“Pure Imagination” has also been well received by folks in and around the comics community, including Garfield Creator Jim Davis.
Davis said that, “Creating a comic strip requires perseverance, determination, and imagination. It would have been nice to have seen a video like Pure Imagination, The Secrets of Comics Creation when I was young. Hopefully this video will inspire others to explore and develop an interest in comics and graphic novels.”
“We feel really honored to be recognized by the Prometheus Film Festival. This film was designed to help kids reach their potential creatively,” says Dan Almoney, Co-Owner/Producer for Media Boomtown, “but there are lessons that are universal and it’s great that there’s an outlet locally where more people will be exposed to our film. Hopefully this will open up more opportunities for the film in the future.”
