MONSTERS storm the British Independent Film Awards

The science fiction thriller MONSTERS has taken home an impressive three awards at the British Independent Film Awards; including BEST DIRECTOR for Gareth Edwards. Gareth Edwards is the writer, director and cameraman for Monsters, a sci-fi thriller set in an alien-infested Mexico. The film was produced on a shoestring budget of around US$500,000. The film has also been awarded Best Achievement in Production and Best Technical Achievement in the same awards. This was a surprise to Director Edwards as the entire special effects production was processed entirely in his bedroom on a Mac computer using store-bought software. MONSTERS opens in Singapore on 20th Jan 2011
