CAUTION: … Work in progress …

Exciting (ish) wee something to (hopefully) accompany the (eventual) screening of The Gift (possibly) – a short I’m making with fellow Hastinger Scott Garrett.

The Gift – progress

Okay so in regards to the short that this blog is supposedly about (!), progress is leisurely, but progress never the less.

I’m currently ‘refining’ the edit a little, with the benefit of not having looked at it for a month or three I’ve made some little improvements here and there, nothing drastic, but hopefully for the better.

Audio wise, once the edit is locked in around a weeks time, I’m handing it over to Atticsound up the coast a bit in Brighton. I met Attic’s Anna at a short film seminar a few weeks back and she’s now on board to mix the audio and provide foley, and it’s all got that little bit more exciting.

FX wise Daffy’s doing well on the pylons, with birds to follow, all of the above being aimed at a completion around the end of May in order to have a week or so to get it off to the London Film Festival, which (fingers, toes and nuts crossed) would be a terrific way to launch it if they go for it. The odds are against it, but I’m as happy as I can be without doing an entire reshoot! … so you never know.

Monkey Business

Just had a meeting with Screen South to pitch a feature script that went … surprisingly well!

Surprising in that they actually read it and had some things to say that were really nice, and some that I instinctively winced at, but in retrospect may actually be really interesting. I did go in there pretty wired from unrelated arguments, brimming with cynicism, and in hinesight I could have probably done with reining in the level of ‘startled’ in my reaction to the fact they’d bothered to have a look at it, but other than that I’m chuffed. I did put on my new white shirt, which I’d ironed especially, so I like to think that also had something to do with it.

Unfortunately, it means little in regards to funding at this stage, but some of the concerns I had were quelled, and they were pretty complementary about some other stuff (it’s so bloody hard to be simultaneously candid and secretive!) so all in all it was well worth it.

Now off to meet up with Grant Orchard (who would be heavily involved with the feature idea) so he can show me his new short film ‘A Morning Stroll’ which I’m VERY excited about, and then some pints with friends,

which is nice.

(incidentally the picture above is in no way a reflection on the meeting, it’s from an archive of reference images for the feature script. Working title ‘The Joy of Sex’)

(or ‘Danny’s a Monster’ …. I can’t decide which I dislike least)

(… feel free to let me know your preference)
