The Young Director Award showcases and rewards some of the most talented young directors from across the globe. “Whisper”, a film promoting the award show in June 2013, showed that when directing is in your bones you become a director before knowing how to hold a camera. And action! We see a flock of pigeons taking off as a kid runs into them, a girl losing grip of her balloons and effortlessly coordinated slices of bread popping out of the toaster – everyday events directed to perfection by the young star of the spot.
Music is Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
