Andy Wooding’s Feature Film…of FISH!
OK, there’s no fish but what an absolute nightmare studying the entire history of the world sociologically, politically and economically turned out to be. Those of you who follow my Instagram stories will know I am right near the actual factual end of writing this script before I start sending it to people, so I am like totally wotally excited wited woo wah.
I haven’t even made the film yet and there are already many people to thank for helping this take shape in the way that it has. Thank you. You don’t know who you are!
To Trend on Twitter
I am cheerfully pleased to say To Trend on Twitter will be playing at the Derby Film Festival at Quad sometime between the 14-17 November (date and time TBC).
The festival has enjoyed the presence of Sir Ben Kingsley, Paddy Considine, Brian Blessed, Toyah Wilcox, Terry Jones, Sir John Hurt and many more and I’m very much looking forward to heading up for it. If you’re in Derby, nearby or just faaaancy the pants off it, come and join!
The aforementioned Sockies on My Feet video is going ahead shortly (I had to put it on ice to focus on the feature) as are three new sketches. If you’d like to be involved with any or all as cast, crew, sponsor/brand then get in touch.
Films I’ve watched
In the spirit of that cute little concept called sharing, a new thing I’m going to do in these updates is list films that I’ve recently watched/revisited that you might also enjoy.
I’ve not ranked, rated or reviewed them. They’re just – in my eyes – worth a look.

Music I’ve Heard
I’m also going to be doing the same with music and put together some cheeky mixes for you all. For now, follow my Spotify and subscribe to my YouTube to catch them the second they go live.
Music I’ve Made
I plan to have completely demoed for my album by this December for a 2020 release. Let’s see, baby!
That’s my train. Gotta run. See you soon.
