That's a Wrap!
Last weekend we shot JOB. a short film written by John and directed and co-produced by myself, Alex. The film has been a labour of love and a provocateur of my own personal insanity over the past year-and-a-bit during which I have been attempting to bring it into fruition.
I cannot begin to express then how revitalised I am feeling knowing that we finally got to shoot this story- one close to my heart and to my own experiences of despair and worthlessness amidst the smoggy urban sprawl of Londontown.
Not only that, but the cast and crew - an utterly first class group of individuals with extraordinary skill and tenacity - served to make the shoot itself a life-enriching experience such as I could not have forseen.
We are all positively buzzing with excitement and anticipation to see the finished product which we hope to have ready early in Autumn. Now that the footage has been handed over to our editor (a splendid Frenchman who happens to make a top-notch ratatouille) all we can do is wait with a fevered eagerness to see the rough cut he emerges from the depths of the edit room with.
In the interim I shall be continuing to follow around my film Making Ends Meat, a thinly veiled satire inspired by the horse meat scandal, as it's played out on various enlarged screens about the place. Last Tuesday for example it was screened at The Alibi in Dalston as part of the premiere and wrap party celebration for Dan Hodgson's latest short film. Evidence below.
And I shall be doing similar with my film Midnight on an Island which a week ago was screened at The Book Club in Shoreditch as part of Cannes In A Van's monthly film and music night. More evidence below.
There are other things also but I'm quite simply too hot to talk about them right now. I'm going to go and be horizontal for a while...
