About Ian and Dominic Higgins
Ian and Dominic Higgins were drawn to cinema as youngsters. Today, their Pixel Revolution Films continues on the leading edge of the digital video revolution.
They studied 3D design, art and photography at Bournville Art College, U.K. A chance meeting with a BBC staffer led to their first movie work. They subsequently started an art and design business in England under the Prince’s Trust, but continued to explore opportunities in film.
The production of self-funded experimental short films led to the Higgins forming Pixel Revolution Films in 2003. Their first production, “The Wolf Who Came in from the Cold,” won Best Animation at the International Digital Video Festival (one of the first all-digital festivals in Hollywood) and at the TIC Film Festival in Birmingham, U.K. – where the film also won the Audience Choice Award for Best Animation.
They followed up with “The Coup De Grace” and “The Unquiet Room,” which earned official selections in a number of film festivals.
“The 13th Day” was the Higgins’ first feature film, and it has received critical and public acclaim for its portrayal of the apparitions of Our Lady in Fatima Portugal, in 1917. They have followed up with “Finding Fatima,” the docudrama that expands on the dramatic presentation of “The 13th Day” through the use of archival footage and interviews with relatives of those who witnessed the events at Fatima.
