Want to know how to bend it like Beckham? Or dribble it like Rooney? Well you’re in the wrong place! Football may be coming home but, unless it’s bringing a Canon 5D mk II and a killer script, we don’t care!
We’re all about the making of the movies and, if you are too, join us in the 100% football free…
THE PRODUCTION OFFICE LIVE, Thursday 10th June – 7.30pm (UK time). Right here on the blog or at the Livestream page at http://www.livestream.com/guerillafilm
And it’s a camera special too!
Squeezing in and sitting down with Chris and Judy this week is Producer Sam Fazackerley, the epitome of a new producer who is dropped in at the deep end and needs to learn at break neck speed and on the job. She will be sharing her extraordinary personal journey, about the importance of aiming high, shooting big and having a great ‘hook’. Just like she did for her debut short film, the ridiculously ambitious ‘Chasing Cotards’, literally the biggest short film ever!
Also dropping into the Production Office will be film maker Craig McCall discussing his critically acclaimed documentary ‘Cameraman, The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff’. Craig will also be chatting about his hugely successful walk up the red carpet in Cannes where the film was officially selected this year. His decade long access to one of the greatest cameramen of all time has given Craig unique insight into the man who shot classics such as ‘The Red Shoes’, ‘The African Queen’ (witch astonishingly just one light!) and ‘A Matter Of Life And Death’. This is a MUST for ANY movie lover. The pic here is of director Craig McCall shooting Martin Scorsese on his clockwork Bolex camera.
There’s more on the earlier blog about Jack with some AMAZING clips here.
Plus there’s another cracking competition and an update on our relentless quest to get Brian Blessed into the office (sat next to Chris into his tiny Flash Gordon shorts!).
All this plus the usual mish mash of news, insights, tips, tricks, gossip, chit-chat, flip flops and a tropical splattering of improvised chaos!
Football’s stupid! Watch this instead.

UPDATE! END OF SEASON PARTY!
Three months, ten shows and five lairy shirts ago, Chris Jones and Judy Goldberg embarked on a ridiculously ambitious quest to turn their 10ft x 10ft Production Office into a full blown TV studio and invite film makers of all shapes and sizes to sit down with them once a week and virally spread the wealth of their knowledge to emerging film makers around the globe.
The pitch was simple: It’s the Guerilla Film Makers Handbooks online in the form of a live weekly TV show. Talk about mixing your mediums!
Now twenty guests, a multitude of technical mishaps and five stress balls later, we hurtle headlong into what will be our first ever season finale on July 1st. And to mark this auspicious occasion we have decided to throw a giant great big fat WRAP party the very next day.
Technology permitting, the party will be streamed live online with everyone and anyone present invited to take their fifteen minutes of fame at the webcam. And though we can’t guarantee any $75m giant yachts, rest assured it’s going to be a wild and raucous night of networking, surprise guests, lovely alcohol and maybe….if we’re very lucky….a balloon hand or two!
Date: Friday July 2nd 2010
Time: 8.00pm onwards
Place: THE PHOENIX ARTIST CLUB, 1 Phoenix Street (Corner of Charing Cross Rd & Phoenix St), London WC2
Ticket are a ridiculously reasonable at £7.00 and each one comes with it’s very own limited edition Production Office MUG.
