Hello. Fancy seeing you here!
(Shakes hand/European kisses/Bows/Hugs).
It’s been a busy Spring/Summer on the film front. Post-prod, pre-prod, development, completion, writing, travelling, shooting and, once in a while, the odd stiff drink.
Having a blast, of course, and here are some ins and outs:
As I mentioned, we went to the Cannes Marché du Film in May with our feature film project. Not an awful lot to report as everything is still under wraps.
We did what we went to do, which was essentially business meetings every day and we are all happy with how everything went. More on that later down the line.
LETTERS TO VANESSA
Our stylish little short wrapped post-prod in late April and we’ve been running the festival submission mill ever since. We’re programmed into the Palm Springs Short Film Market, so if you’re a programmer, distributor or just a fan of film and are out there with access, then go and look for our movie.
If you haven’t seen them already, here are the official teaser and full trailers:
Initial storyboarding, music composition and colour testing is nearing completion on our short family animation Monsieur Papier, a fun family frolic following a piece of paper as he tries to escape from a workaholic writer’s typewriter.
Animation will commence in July. To keep up to date with all progress, join us over on our Monsieur Papier Facebook Page.
TO TREND ON TWITTER
As I mentioned last month, work has begun on our next live action short film To Trend on Twitter, an ambitious piece about the mother of a dying child being catapulted into celebrity culture and how she copes with it.
We plan to shoot the film in July/August and if you’d like to muck in and help in any shape or form (or know someone who can) then please do drop me a line.
Stay up to date with the project on the To Trend on Twitter facebook page.
That’s it for now. Have a gorgeous June and we’ll ‘ave another little natter in a month.
