Two aspiring Halifax filmmakers can start making movie magic now that they’ve won the 2009 Bridge Award, which recognizes new talent.

Kevin Kincaid and Rebecca Sharratt were selected by a panel of industry experts and will begin producing films that will be shown on CBC television, a Film Nova Scotia news release says.

The projects will receive $20,000 each from Film Nova Scotia and an equal amount in licenses services from the CBC.

 

Sharratt is working on What Remains, a story about a “the complex relationships” within a family facing illness, while Kincaid’s project is called titled Bernard the Magician, a film that follows a boy obsessed with magic who redeems himself after a life of being bullied.
