Out of 48 nominated short films selected from work showcased at Le Book's Connections show, four have been chosen by a jury of esteemed creatives and executives from big-name brands as the winners of the awards.
An additional three films have been picked as runners up and a final film was awarded the Jury Prize, which scores the artist a commission from Nowness with grading from VFX company Rushes.
The 34-person jury that chose the winners of the 2013 London Short Film Showcase includes All Saints creative director Wil Beedle, Coca Cola marketing manager Rebecca Hirst, Armani brand director Ann Massal, H&M creative director Donald Schneider and visual director at Stella McCartney Jonathan Schofield.
On to the winners now, and the first is from the Digital & Animation category. 'Mourir Auprès de Toi (To Die by Your Side)' (above) was directed by Simon Cahn and Spike Jonze, and animated by Sylvain Derosne and Léonard Cohen. Using stop motion, the characters on the front of designer Olympia Le-Tan's book-themed bags come to life on the shelves of the Shakespeare and Company bookstore.
In the Fashion & Beauty category, the winner is Jean Paul Gaultier's 'On The Docks' advert (above), directed by Johnny Green. The ad combines supermodels with impressive CG imagery and a sexy love story to create a winning film.
Wilfrid Brimo's 'Shaped By Sensation' Mercedes ad (above) wins the Live Action & Documentary category at the Le Book and Nowness's London Short Film Showcase. The Sensations campaign is actually made up of twelve short videos that total 14 minutes in length.
Directing duo Bison win the Music Video category for the video for London Grammar's Wasting My Young Years (above).
The video was shot on 35mm film using a homemade camera rig that Bison created using 625 individual pinhole cameras that were exposed at the same time.
The three runners up featured by Le Book and Nowness include Kourtney Roy's spectacularly creepy 'Lady Dior' (above) in the Fashion & Beauty category.
Kourtney says on her Facebook page that the idea stems from her own fascination of staging her own death. Each dead woman in the video carries her Lady Dior bag, which Kourtney says "lent itself easily to a woman obsessed by the idea of keeping her most precious worldly possession with her, even in death."
The second runner up is Boys Don't Cry by Fanny Latour Lambert, a striking and thought-provoking short film (above).
The third and final runner up is Alberto Mielgo's TRON Uprising art direction film, a four-minute video that comprises of Alberto's favourite scenes from the movie he worked on as Art Director and Production Director.
