//Thirteen & Co's 'The Craft' Awarded 1st Place at One Screen Short Film Festival//Thirteen & Co director Armand de Saint-Salvy's dramatic short film "The Craft" has taken out 1st place in the Fiction category of the seventh annual One Screen Short Film Festival, the premiere short film festival from The One Club for Creativity that unites the film and advertising worlds.

"The Craft" had the prestigious honour of opening the event, held at the SVA Theatre MAP in New York late last last week.

It was fascinating to see passion projects screen along side multi million dollar brand shorts. Currently, there is a thirst for branded stories where entertainment is the focus. It's an exciting time to be a film maker."

The film, written by Saint-Salvy to give audiences an insight into the powerful and dangerous emotional techniques actors use to create a performances, was filmed over a very intense long shoot day in 2018 with the actors Zoe Terakes and Helen Thompson. The Craft was produced by Benjamin O'Donnell and jointly funded by Saint-Salvy and production collective  //Thirteen & Co.
