Printing the final DVD inserts

I am completing the DVD package for ‘Gone Fishing’. I already have a DVD mastered, which looks and sounds as good as any DVD I have ever seen (in both Dolby Digital and DTS). In my office I can duplicate DVD’s, four at a time, and I also have a colour robotic DVD face printer, […]

Gone Fishing Folders and Red One Report

The big PR push for ‘Gone Fishing’ is now starting. We have been to Cannes and now that is over, we are going to focus on première festivals and competitions. One of my observations about short films that come to me (because of The Guerilla Film Makers Handbook I get sent lots of shorts) is […]

Dust settling and super stands!

The last few weeks have been utterly exhausting. I moved house, made a very dominating corporate video, went to Cannes, helped a friend whose business went bankrupt, ran the Hollywood Masterclass (including having Genevieve and Andrew stay in the new flat, with unopened boxes, along with their little girl Casey Mae!). Add to that the […]

Short Film Corner Feedback

By being part of The Short Film Corner in Cannes, your film is digitised onto their system and is available for private viewing in their booths. This means people can get to see your film at any point. The quality is pretty poor, which is a shame, but it is very accessible. You also get […]

Cannes 2008, our second day, Monday…

Last night ended on a real high – I stood right by the red carpet as Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford walked right by, after the world premiere of Indiana Jones. I must admit, I got goose bumps. Awesome. So this morning I dropped of the 35mm print of ‘Gone Fishing’ at film […]

Cannes 2008, our first day… Sunday…

So I landed in a rainstorm and at 10pm was immediately whisked off to my first party at the Century Club on a rainy beach… until 3am (pictured here with producer Ivan Clements sister-in-law). I spent most of the evening chatting to film maker friends and getting the skinny on the market. Apparently, this year […]

Postcard from the producer…

We have a screening set for 11.30am on Tuesday and I've been on the prowl and inviting loads of people, buyers, film fest scouts etc. Whilst doing this, I […]

The day of the screening

To say I was nervous would have been an understatement. Yesterday was the key screening of ‘Gone Fishing’ for Producer Marc Samuelson, the screening that we had been aiming at for the last year. Gone Fishing was produced to show Marc just what I could do as a director, so it was all riding on […]

Today is the day…

So today is the big day, the reason why we made ‘Gone Fishing’ in the fist place… to screen it to Marc Samuelson to show my abilities as a director with a view to my staying on board Rocketboy… And so I have been reflecting on the past year and thought I would share some […]

The first screening approaches…

So I have moved house. I left my old place in what felt like the winter, and arrived at my new place, 1 mile down the road, in what feels like the summer. I can’t believe how much stuff I have, at least half of which is movie related materials that need archiving. Thank god […]

Shooting is getting closer and deals are being struck. We managed to get ALL of our 35mm camera equipment for free from Arri, saving us thousands. Not only that, but we managed to get a second camera body too, so we will have an active second unit for the whole production. Film maker buddy, Simon […]
