Happy Fruitbowls everyone,
I hope all’s been going swimming poolingly with you. For me, the last few months have been monthy and full of days. Here’s an update on my shorts, specs and a secret feature.
We’re continuing to move forward with our feature project-we-can’t-talk-about and I’m still looking forward to sharing the news as and when.
We’re in Cannes (for the Marché du Film) from the 16-20th, so as long as you’re not crazy then drop me a line to talk biz or just for a chat.
Meanwhile, I’ve been doing a page 1 rewrite (my favourite kind of rewrite) of our family comedy animation PLANTS.
More on the story etc. here. It’s been a long time in the works but then such is the life of a spec. The story now has a great unity between character, theme, world and story which it certainly lacked in the earlier iteration…and a stinging nettle villain…
Things are moving forward, in the background, on our 4 minute animated short Monsieur Papier – the story of a piece of paper trying to escape a writer’s typewriter. A trailer will be available by the end of the year.
Letters to Vanessa is finally complete and a screening is imminent. It’s been a long slog but we’ve made it. Lots of love to all the talented people that made it happen. There isn’t one of them I wouldn’t recommend the services of. Check them out here.
Keep your eyes open for a teaser. We’re posting shortly….
To Trend on Twitter is a new project, I’m pleased to announce. It’s a docufiction short, following a mother’s rise to twitter fame because of her terminally ill son.
I’ve got my eye on actors. Some of you should expect an email in the next few weeks.
It’s going to be one great big pain in the toes to produce (due to its scale) but I’m excited nonetheless. ‘Like’ the Facebook Page for updates as and when, although they’ll be thin on the ground until August.
Still snapping (of course). Here’re a couple of recenters:
Well. That’s it. I’ve had it with you lot. Back to my year. More soon.
