Lonely Wolf: London International Film Festival
London, England – 2020
Sloppy Jones is excited to announce that we were nominated for Best Pilot/Series at Lonely Wolf: London International Film Festival.
“As a first episode, Sloppy Jones is virtually faultless. Jong succeeds in the difficult task of inviting us into the world of these characters and the hilariously morbid circumstances they find themselves facing, all in under four minutes. Thanks to Jamie Hart, Sophie Nation and Jonathan Neil Alexander’s script, the episode is structurally watertight. It creates exposition through individual character interviews and cleverly bookends them with ensemble scenes, anchoring flashbacks and comic off-shoots to the social and spatial parameters of this world.”Hannah Brown, Lonely Wolf
