Glue Society fellow Alice Cogin one of three winners of global Jameson Short Film comp

AliceCogin.jpgThis weekend, Hollywood producer, Dana Brunetti (The Social Network, House of Cards, Captain Phillips) announced the winners of his Jameson First Shot competition.

From thousands of entries from all around the world, three winners were selected - and they include Glue Society fellow, Alice Cogin from Australia.

Ollie Wolf from London, Jason Manella from Ontario, and Alice will all be flown to L.A. to shoot their original short ideas, each 15 minutes, with a full Hollywood crew over the next three weeks. The final three short films will premiere at a November gala in the USA.
As in previous years, a Hollywood star is chosen to appear in each of the three films.

This year Dominic West (The Wire, The Affair, Appropriate Adult) will feature in each of the short films, which he and Brunetti chose from thousands of entries from around the world.

Says Brunetti: "I've been involved in Jameson First Shot since the beginning and I'm always amazed at the quality of the scripts that we have the opportunity to read. I've been proud of every one of the 15 films that we've made, and I can't wait to get started on the next three -- the scripts from Ollie, Alice and Jason are incredible."

Says West: "I think that the people that have been involved in Jameson First Shot speaks volumes for how necessary a platform like this is. Each of their stories are going to challenge me, as they've created characters that are very different to any that I've played before."

Cogin has been part of the Glue Society fellowship programme for the past nine months - and will be formally joining the creative collective in September.
