SJ Movie Awards for Best Production Houses.
Mimran Schur Pictures
Releasing a movie like 2011's "Shame" takes a lot of courage, not just on the part of the artists but the production houses involved in it as well. So See-Saw Films, one of the studios involved in producing "Shame," definitely deserves an SJ Award. Based out of both London, England and Sydney, Australia, See-Saw was founded in 2008 by Emile Sherman and Iain Canning, and is well on its way to the "big time," but hopefully that won't mean the end of daring independent films like "Shame."
One of the most blistering and tense film experiences of 2011 (or any other year), "We Need To Talk About Kevin" is an unforgettable masterpiece. One of the production houses who made it possible was the UK outfit Forward Films, founded by film producers Tracy Brimm and Kate Myers. Hopefully they will continue to do excellent work in 2012 and beyond.
