WME Signs Young Filmmaking Trio Behind Award-Winning Short 'Noah' (Exclusive)
"Noah" won the Toronto Film Festival YouTube Award for Best Canadian Short Film.
In a competitive environment, WME has signed the directing trio of Walter Woodman, Patrick Cederberg and Matthew Hornick.
Cederberg and Hornick are recent high school graduates while Woodman just graduated from Ryerson University and are coming off winning the Toronto Film Festival YouTube Award for Best Canadian Short Film for their 17-minute short Noah.
Noah tells of a teen’s break-up with his girlfriend but in a brilliant twist, the story takes place entirely on his home computer screen. Facebook, IMs, Skype, iTunes and iPhones are used to capture the angst, awkwardness and the cringe-making thought-process of the teen’s mind.
The short is now touring through other festivals.
Woodman and Cederberg co-wrote and co-directed Noah while Hornick co-produced.
If being award-winning filmmakers wasn't enough, the trio also make up the indie psychedelic band Shy Kids.
The three are repped by Anonymous Content, who picked them up a week after Toronto’s festival.
