Jackman Film Wins Aurora Award

Aurora Award Windsor Knot, a short film produced and directed by John Jackman, has just received the prestigious gold Aurora Award, an international peer-reviewed award for film and television production. Other recent Aurora recipients include PBS, Sesame Studios, Biography Channel, Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, Buena Vista Home Entertainment, and the Academy of Television Arts & Science Foundation.

Windsor Knot tells the behind-the-scenes story of the abdication of King Edward VIII in 1937, with an unexpected twist of blackmail (or is it just political pressure?) from Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin. Windsor Knot was shot in the then-new HDV format, and several motion picture labs then were tested for 35mm prints from the digital HD production. The process of filming, editing, and film blowup were featured in an article in DV Magazine. More information about Windsor Knot is online at

Jackman previously won an Aurora for his 2001 documentary series Zinzendorf, and was then invited to serve on the 2004 and 2005 judging committees.
