Kodak Awards Official Selection Screenings

Kodak002  Yesterday was the official selection screenings of the Kodak shortlisted films at the Curzon West End. I have written a much lengthier blog entry to publish next week, after the whole event has ended, about my thoughts and feelings regarding the entire experience and the British Film Industry. For now though, this is just a short précis of events.

The day started with Sam Clark from Kodak giving each of the eight candidates a certificate for getting down the final eight. Seeing a photo opportunity, I held it high and grinned broadly – unless you were there, you just won’t know if the there were 10 people or 1000 people in the auditorium! As crazy as these kind of pictures are, they are very useful down the line in mythologizing both oneself as a film maker, as well as the film (the pic shows me and producer Ivan Clements and was taken by fellow film maker Suki Singh who is now making a Microwave feature film – good for him and I can’t wait to see the results! I also believe he cut a deal with Sam from Kodak while at the screening, so he is also making the difficult choice of shooting on film. Again, good for him! A good deal is always to be made at events like these).

    As it was my first experience of viewing movies entered for competition since completing my course, it was quite interesting. Overall, the standard was good, nothing too complicated, which gave me greater confidence for my future planned shorts.
