Pennan Brae Wins Award of Excellence For Astronot Screenplay at HIFF

Screenplay writer Pennan Brae won an Award of Excellence at the Headline International Film Festival for his screenplay for ‘The Astronot‘.  The idea for the feature film screenplay came about when Pennan was doing a photoshoot with Vancouver photographer Dan Jackson of Manifest Photography.  Pennan was wearing an astronaut suit & holding a rickety old ladder whilst standing beneath a full moon.  The idea then dawned on Pennan; ‘what if there was someone who wanted to become an astronaut but was unable to?’.  & that’s how ‘The Astronot‘ was born.
