It's alive! ALIVE!!

This is actually news from last week, but I completely forgot to blog about it at the time. Never mind.

In February and March of 2005 I directed a little micro-budget short film. Most of the post-production happened quickly, but then a string of things went wrong with the sound design. To wit, several people were lined up to do it and then for various reasons didn't actually do it (and in some cases took an excruciatingly long time not actually doing it).

The 2nd AD from the film crew eventually came to my rescue and volunteered for the sound job. (If only I'd known 18 months earlier that he was interested in sound design...) Last week he delivered me a DVD with his final changes, and we are finished! Hooray!

We were in post production for almost two years. Not hooray!

The film's called "No Circulars Please". Look for it at a cheap and cheerful shorts screening near you.

That's great news! Are you going to submit it to BBC Film Network?

It'll go to the usual places for cheap-and-cheerful short films, so yeah, Film Network for defo. I submitted it to the East End Film Festival last week, though I'm not holding out a lot of hope for it to get in -- I think they're probably aiming higher than cheap-and-cheerful there.

We certainly do!

You might already know of this, but lest you don't - Film Council have a short film mailing list you can subscribe to. They'll send you info on submission deadlines for short film festivals.
