American Cinematographer Amateur Movie Makers Contest, 1935 - Honorable Mention

Description:

"When you go to England this summer, and are looking for attractive color material, take a tip from Alan Moorhouse, ACL, of Toronto, as exemplified in his charming reel, A Village by the Sea. Running 400 feet of delightful Kodachrome, it tells a simple genre story of village life in Cornwall, down at the southwest tip of England. Here, streets and structures date from centuries back and the country folk still wrest their simple living from fish trawling in the cold, gray Channel waters. Mr. Moorhouse has caught a deal of this physical and spiritual color in his one reel film." Movie Makers, July 1936, 278.

"A. Scott Moorhouse of Toronto, Ontario, entered a combination black and white and Kodachrome subject in 'Village by the Sea.' This picture went very far in the finals and is highly deserving of the honorable mention it receives." American Cinematographer, Feb. 1936, 73.
