Junior Day, of 13 Pictures, has won a prestigious Award of Excellence from The Best Shorts Film Competition. The award was given for Mr Junior Day’s exciting surreal LGBT drama, Wolves Gone Hunting, which aimed to raise questions about gun safety and awareness. Wolves Gone Hunting features an exceptional story-line, following the before and after events of a mass shooting – starring Eve Pemberton and Jenna O’Hara as a lesbian couple living in an unaccepting society.
Inspired by true events such as the 2018 Parkland, Florida school shooting, and the 2017 Las Vegas Strip shooting, Wolves Gone Hunting switches up from the conventional storytelling structure and creates an episodic puzzle that comes full circle, leading to a fresh narrative exploring these types of violent events.
“It was fulfilling to work with such a talented team and see the amazing recognition we have been receiving so far. The relevance and gravity of the subject meant we were determined to get the tone of the piece exactly right”. – Eve Pemberton, Lead Actress
