Hey peeps and peepettes
As the classic 2000 rock band Stain’d once remarked, it’s been a while. You are all due an update.
First things first - soon you shall be getting all your delightful rewards, and we apologise for the delay in getting them to you. We have not been sitting on our laurels, I assure you. We have no laurels to speak of. I am unsure what a laurel is.
The rewards will be sent out in the next few weeks when we get the remaining funds from Creative England and you will get a private link to the film on Saturday 17th October!
Meanwhile: We have been getting on with the business of post-production, a glorious affair which involves a lot of time spent in front of a computer going slowly, quietly and sexily crazy. Our marvellous editor Isaac, our sound designer Zander and our grading man Chris are doing an excellent job of making Stages look and sound really rather nice.
We also have some rather exciting news (drumroll please)
Every year, Creative England, BFI Net.work and Creative Skillset hold showcases of short films from the iShorts scheme for us to enter. The first one will be Aesthetica in York in November and Stages has been accepted!
It’s also a BAFTA-qualifying festival!
I mean - hahahahaha as if lol yeah rite - but a girl can dream can’t she?
Dream about getting close enough to Stephen Fry to be able to lick his face? Dream about passing Benedict Cumberbatch on the way to a tray of free salmon puffs? Dream about sharing a fruity joke with Hayley Atwell whilst throwing some shapes on the dance floor with Abi Morgan?! Dream about the Nesquick bunny chasing you through a dark forest whilst you're naked and you're late for a maths exam!? Sorry... different kind of dream.
Anyway - we are off to York on the 7th of November to watch the film on a big cinema screen in front of people, and afterwards there is a Q & A. I am hoping we get asked questions like “what's your favourite thing about Cher?” and “why are there no cats in your film?”
If you’d like to know more about the festival, this is the link. http://www.asff.co.uk/
The next showcase will be at London Short Film Festival in January, which we are also planning to submit to.
Anyway, to sum up. Thanks again! You shall have your excellent rewards soon! York! Benedict Custardpatch!
Also here are some on-set snaps taken by our lovely photographer Sue for you to enjoy xxxxx
