Gone Fishing… The Final Awards… Did we win BEST FILM?


So it’s all over. What an incredible journey. And we won! We are now officially in the race for the nominations for the Oscars 2009. Can you believe it? I certainly can’t. After the awards, I went back to my room and crashed out for 2 hours, I had burnt up so much energy during the event!

I am back in the UK now, jet lagged and phased,but  with a whole new agenda stretching out in front of us. Now we really need to ramp things up as getting the nomination for the Oscars is also about being visible in Hollywood, and that’s going to take some magic.

George, director of the Rhode Island Film Festival, has agreed to advise us on strategies for this, and I am sure he will be a fountain of knowledge, and hopefully a partner on that journey…

Blimey. I mean really. Blimey!

I need to sleep.

PS – Finally, if you have been watching these webisobes, drop me a line to tell me what you have thought of them, what you have got from them.

Onwards and upwards!

Chris Jones, Film Maker and Author

    A moment in time. And the winner is!

    Great amazing stuff. All the preparation hard work. All achieved through a single path. Communication.

    Who knows Perhaps there is a groundswell building. An oscar with Chris Jones name on it? The possibilities from such a win?

    The British are coming. Are they not?

    Brilliant! Who needs moody and statement making – just shows what audiences really appreciate!

    Gone Fishing is like the little engine that could – nobody can keep it down!
