Des Whelan ACO has won the 2018 Feature Operator Award

“Darkest Hour” was primarily a single camera shoot, a back to our roots production, with our Director,  Joe Wright on the floor beside the Camera, every day, close to the Crew and Actors, everybody was engaged and on their best behaviour. 

With little CGI used or required, the story was told on Camera on the day. Joe Wright kept the story real and engaging with wonderful performances by the cast. Beautifully photographed by Bruno DelBonnel AFC ASC, who was nominated for an Oscar in 2018 for his work. 

An inspiring Cast, a great script, a fantastic crew, shooting on real locations, made for a wonderful film experience.”
