Great great news! Producer Ivan Clements has managed to get BAFTA for our World Premiere for Gone Fishing, and also for the one day seminar about how we made the film. So that means if you have the £100 film makers package, you can come to the one day seminar at BAFTA, then come to the premiere in the evening! We also got an Ad in the BAFTA magazine, and here is the text below. If you know anyone who would like to attend this one day seminar and then come to the world premiere, please let them know as seating is limited…All other people who chose to contribute will be welcome at the premiere.
Here’s the text of the ad…
From concept, to script, to production, to edit and finally, to premiere – a one day seminar at BAFTA , culminating in the black tie and posh frock world premiere of the 35mm short film, ‘Gone Fishing’.
Directed by Guerilla Film Makers Handbook author Chris Jones, Gone Fishing is a moving and powerful 35mm short film, financed entirely by voluntary contributions. Starring Bill Paterson (Miss Potter), Devon Murray (Harry Potter) and introducing young James Wilson, Gone Fishing is the touching tale of an old man as he tells the tale of how he caught the worlds biggest pike, Goliath… think Jaws, but for kids.
This one day seminar, to be held at BAFTA on January 12th, will cover all aspects of production, taking attendees on both the creative and financial journey as this project evolved into the movie that will premiere that very evening! Attendees will receive unparalleled access to all production notes, documents, schedules, budgets and story boards etc.
This is a terrific opportunity for any new film maker to learn how the film was made, go on the creative journey, and attend the world premiere at London’s most prestigious film venue, ALL IN ONE DAY!
Places cost £100 and all proceeds will be used to offset production costs, or used to promote the film in a bid for major awards on the festival circuit.
Places are limited. To book or for a further breakdown of this course, please got to our website at
