Brenton Richards Wins Award in Best Shorts Film Competition

Brampton, Ontario, August 2016 – Brenton Richards, has won a prestigious Award of Excellence from The Best Shorts Film Competition. The award was given for Brenton Richards' exciting Poetic Short, Rendezvous, which was created to illustrate the challenges of morality and choice through poetry. Rendezvous features exceptional visual imagery set to the tone of late American Poet Alan Seeger's Rendezvous With Death. Unlike the Famous poem, Rendezvous puts a twist on the words, personifying the conflict through Death's point of view.

"I've always loved the idea of death being embodied as a physical entity. It's something that many people are afraid of, but when you invision death as a person, it becomes something tangible, something you can face, something you run from, or run towards. In Rendezvous, Death, like any other person, has made a choice. But our antagonist, has not yet done so. Ultimately, what's on display is the power and frailty of human will; even when it seems that our paths have been chosen for us, we still have a choice.." - Brenton Richards,

"it was definitely a challenge, not having any dialogue and trying to portray the emotions of the character. I was very pleased with the final product and hope to do more projects like this in the future" - Sammy Azero
