It was going to be an early start with this shoot. Up at 5.30am to leave for 6.30am and arrive at Dorking station for 8am. I was transporting most of the equipment and props in my relatively small car, and it was my first time using a sat nav, so just arriving to the meet was a some what challenge.
The pre production for the next short film has begun. A lot went on and still is going on with the companies last short film “Growing Pain.” But with so much in the pipeline I was too excited to wait. This next project has been ‘living’ before GP was in production and the idea has been modified various times to find it’s final concept.
The film is complete and now at the start of it’s marketing. It is live on the Pattern Maker site and it’s Youtube and Vimeo accounts. Keep updated with the results of the screenings and festivals it has been put forward too.
Growing Pain is on IMDB
The movie has it’s first screening at: Exploding Cinema, Friday 27th September @ The Canterbury Arms, Brixton. My last short film was screened there, they must like my stuff, I could possibly become an event resident to them! It is a passionate organisation and a good warm up event for festivals.
Got home late and back up early for day two as you do in the world of film. I had all the equipment etc. loaded and drove over to sunny Holland Park in West London. The unit base was at my friend Katrina’s Allen’s house which was also one of the shooting locations. The cast and crew called for the early start were nicely on time, which was pleasing to see them all there when I got there. The only main hazard for the day was the parking. (more…)
Here we go and ready to go, the pre production and everything before the big days had come to an end. I can honestly say I was nervous, but you got to feel the fear and do it anyway, you got to work through those uncomfortable feelings. The rehearsal was done at the Telegraph pub, it was a smooth and interesting process to see the script coming to life through the different stages.
