The office has never been more full – right now, our tiny twelve foot by eight foot space is housing an entire production team for the corporate job we are undertaking (plus boxes and boxes of high tech props). It may looked cramped, it is actually, but it’s also a lot of fun. And because we are all in the same space, a very small space, we are constantly eaves dropping on each others phone calls and problems, and as such, can offer immediate advice, contacts and tips to each other. It’s crazy but surprisingly productive.
Alongside Judy and myself, we now have Helen Taylor and Matt Grinter on our team. What’s really great about both of these guys is that they are very active in the current film making scene and so have loads of contacts with others who are also very active right now too. It’s a constantly evolving landscape out there, and for someone like me, someone who may spend six months ‘off the scene’ while writing, their up to date knowledge is vital.
Add to that, it turns out that both Helen and Matt are both superstars (recommended by Stephanie Wrate who production managed ‘Gone Fishing’ – thanks Stef!)
So much to do. So little time to do it.
Onwards and upwards!
