Getty Images recently joined forces with London’s popular weekly short film evening Short & Sweet to launch a competition for filmmakers to create a short inspired by, and using visual content from, its enormous archive, housed at the Hulton Archive. Laurie Hill scooped the top prize for his film Photograph of Jesus, shown above.

The brief for the filmmakers was that at least 50% of the content must be taken from the Hulton Archive and that the short must highlight the breadth and depth of the archive as a resource. Hill tackles this directly in his film, by combining footage of the archive with an interview with archivist Matthew Butson on some of the most unusual requests he has received in his time there. Hill then charmingly brings these stories to life as part of the film.


Perrington Stud by Big Red Button

Hill won £5,000 as grand prize winner, with runner-up Big Red Button awarded £3,000 for their film Perrington Stud (shown above). Ian Mackinnon & Dominic Parker and Jasmin Jodry were given honourable mentions and £1,000 each for their films, which are shown below. All four films can also be seen at tonight’s Short & Sweet event, which takes place at Cafe 1001 on 91 Brick Lane from 7pm.
