All of us here at IPM would like to wish a huge CONGRATULATIONS to our close compadre Harvey Ascott on his career defining Academy Award nomination for his gripping short film Shok directed by Jamie Donoughue.
Producer Harvey and IPM have a long history of collaboration, from Music Videos, Shorts, a Feature Film, to working directly with us at our Acting Academy. Harvey has achieved what all filmmakers dream of, the coveted prize that is often the definition of success in this arduous industry.
Shok is the story of two boys who’s friendship is tested to its limits as they battle for survival during the Kosovo war. The first Albanian/Kosovan film to ever be nominated for an Oscar, Harvey has made history, not only for himself but for an entire nation and that is something to be proud of.
I cannot reiterate enough how proud we are of Harvey, so here’s to Harvey Ascott and our continued collaborations as well as his continued success.
