BtG Workshop One

January 18th, 2010 Comments Off

The first BtG workshop led by Peter Symes was very insightful, there are some fantastic ideas for films. You can be certain it will be tough to be selected for the final 7. The projects range from Arizonian old people living under constant threat of a biohazard attack, to a blind photographer.

I’m sure all the members of the workshop will be entrenched with the dreaded question…. ” but what is the film?”…. Which is thoroughly engrained into my psyche, and is my new boomerang question when developing a pitch.

I had huge input from all filmmakers and workshop leaders when developing my project, my log-line & title… and I really feel like I’ve made progress. Although, now I’ve lots of research to do…. and I’ve also got a particularly tricky puzzle to workout.

Interview with Paul Smith

January 15th, 2010 Comments Off

Filming was successful at the Paul Smith Offices in London yesterday, I managed to shoot about half an hour with Paul talking about the ‘Stamped Objects’ and the Mystery Sender. Then we interviewed the Receptionist and documented the objects that were there.

I sent a cereal box that I’d designed to Paul and when I applied for BtG, inside was the application, a copy of the trailer and some cereal. The Idea was that I needed something I could put stamps on and send in the post which could hold the contents of the pitch. Also This year’s theme for BtG is Surprise- so the idea was ‘There’s a surprise in every box’

There will be 12 projects to be developed and I will then pitch again on the 16th March for the final 8 places – but Intend to start the filming at the end of Jan.
