The Internet Story premiere went very well – just a cast and crew shindig at Channel 4′s little screening room. And here’s a picture of me looking pleased/smug afterwards. Thanks to those that came!
The short now has an IMDb page and is currently attacking the festival circuit at home and abroad. I’ll let you what happens!
I recently did a little bit of Production Design/Animation work for Open Cinema- who run cinemas for homeless and socially excluded people, as well as make cool short films on micro budgets. My work for their latest film Heroes and Villains was premiered at BAFTA and well-recieved. Watch out for the cardboard – that’s my bit!
Before Arcadia first premiered, I managed to set aside just enough time to produce this quick little Making Of featurette, to screen alongside it. Since then, people could only catch it on the rare DVD copies- until now!
As the film was produced on a £20 note and spare time, I hope you might be interested to see how we did it. It’s a very brisk tour but covers most of the stages, and is full of interesting production shots.
Spoiler warning: If you haven’t seen all of Arcadia yet, this little doc might spoil some things. And it probably wouldn’t make much sense anyway.
Just a quick note on Internet Story: more delay I’m afraid. We’re now hoping for a December premiere in London.
Hmm. I’m very much considering adapting the script to include this sort of thing. I’ll let you know how it goes.
In other news, Arcadia received another strong reception, this time at the Sci Fi London Festival. It also got a rather nice write-up from the people at Vector Magazine, referring to it as “a shining example of how well an ultra-low-budget short can work”. Yeah, sounds about right! Thanks!
