Danny Boyle has chosen 'Walk Tall' as the winner of Shooting People's 'Film of the Month'.

Huge thanks to everyone who helped it secure a place in the final round and of course a massive thanks once again to everyone who worked with me on the film.

And last but by no means least of course a huge big Olympic-sized thanks to Danny Boyle for his kind comments.


Walk Tall is screening at The Shuffle Festival.
The festival is curated by Danny Boyle, so this is a bit of a one to be proud of.
