Paladin Pictures Film Wins Two Awards in Cleveland Festival

Charlottesville, Virginia – July 11, 2005 - Local media company Paladin Pictures and The Brothers Williamson continue to receive recognition for their dramatic film When Love Walks In. Most recently, When Love Walks In was shown at the Indie Gathering Film Festival in Cleveland, Ohio and was awarded Best Feature Film in the dramatic category. In addition, actress Savannah Grace received The Director’s Award for her outstanding performance as a child struggling with the loss of her mother. These accolades are added to a growing list of honors that When Love Walks In has received, including Best Clean Flick, Best Actress, Best Soundtrack, and Best Marketing.

 As a winning entry at this year’s Indie Gathering Film Festival, When Love Walks In will gain additional exposure in the independent film community.  The motion picture will be featured in Internet Video Magazine and will be screened at the Urban Mediamakers Film Festival in Atlanta, Georgia later this year. Directors Brad and Kent C. Williamson expect to visit many other cities, as well, as they continue to show When Love Walks In to festival audiences around the country.
In addition to being praised by festival audiences, When Love Walks In has also been recognized by media professionals within the industry by winning a 2005 Telly Award. The 26th Annual Telly Awards Competition is an international event that aims to honor excellence in commercials, television programs, and video and film productions.  Rather than competing against each other, entries are evaluated against a high standard of merit established by a panel of accomplished media professionals. Out of more than ten thousand competitors, When Love Walks In was among the ten percent that were awarded their highest honor, partly due to the full-featured DVD on which the film has been released.  The DVD contains a “film school 101” director’s commentary, the complete nineteen-song soundtrack, and many other extras such as outtakes, deleted scenes, and chapter selection options.
Filmed entirely in Albemarle and Buckingham counties, When Love Walks In tells the story of John Redgrave, a photographer who struggles to raise his three-year-old daughter after his wife’s untimely death.  Emotionally devastated, he attempts to pick-up the pieces of his shattered life with the help of his charming father and an unlikely new love interest. Elements of loss, love, and eventual restoration have audiences comparing When Love Walks In to films like Bounce starring Ben Affleck and Gwyneth Paltrow and Sleepless in Seattle starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.
