Earlier this year, they were thrilled to learn that they had been shortlisted as a nominee in the 14th edition of the ART&TUR - International Tourism Film Festival in Aveiro and said that they never expected to win five awards in total.
The nominated production was for their promotional video Sky Base One that tells the story of a movie inspired villa that is now being built in Carvoeiro. The inspiration behind the villa's design was the Millenium Falcon spaceship in Star Wars, and it appears to have crash-landed onto the Seaview plot in Lagoa.
The video shows a story of a young girl drawing the spaceship and showing it to her Architect Father, Alexandre Mendes of Bespoke Architects (also located in Carvoeiro). Then, the Father begins to draw the sketches of the villa and the girls drawing becomes a reality.
Founder of Spy Manor Productions, Vanda Everke, said: “We are truly thrilled to have received so many awards for our Sky Base One video! I'd like to thank Daniel, Nissan & Peter for creating such a unique piece!”
