Greenville, S.C. (January 16, 2014) – Phil Neves, a 2013 Cinema Production graduate of Bob Jones University and resident of Sunbury, Pa., won the first place award for short film in the Intercollegiate National Religious Broadcasters (iNRB) Student Production Awards competition.

Neves’ film, No Compromise, is a 12- minute social science fiction film he completed as his cinema capstone senior project. The film included a cast and crew of nearly 30 students and staff members and was filmed on the BJU campus and in the Greenville area.

Neves will be recognized at the iNRB Awards Ceremony at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tenn. on Feb. 24. In addition to receiving a cash award and a travel stipend, he will participate in the National Religious Broadcasters Convention.

“I’m fascinated by the relationship of individuals to institutions,” said Neves. “At home, work, school, and under government, we’re surrounded by bureaucracy and automation. As institutions grow and age, they can become inflexible and fail to respond to individuals on an individual basis. No Compromise is an exploration of what it feels like when you don’t fit into the machine — what it’s like to be a loose part trapped in the gears.”
