Money money money

Money money money

One of the main reasons to be in Cannes is to raise money for your film. Assuming that you want to make your film rather than simply sell it to a studio, there are a number of finance avenues open to UK independent producers. There has been an awful lot of chatter recently about public […]

Meeting Mrs Doubtfire

Meeting Mrs Doubtfire

Saturday saw us in back to back meetings around La Croisette, including one we made by the skin of our teeth because The Grand’s frontage has been obscured by vast pavillions for Variety and Audi. On days like this, when the pace and intensity of Cannes are full on, it’s good to escape to the back […]

Cannes 64 - recession, what recession?

Cannes 64 – recession, what recession?

The general feeling on the Croisette is one of bustle and industry you can almost see the big ideas hatching and next year’s Palme D’Or winner taking shape, a very different atmosphere to when we were last here. We are very excited about the next few days (and a bit miffed that we missed the […]

When Ian and I sat down to watch what was practically the final edit, it was a relief,  although I knew that wouldn’t be able to get any distance and objectivity for some time. I’d watched it so many times in different forms over the previous year. The final task was to get Laura Howard […]

On October 6th, Rael Jones began working on the score to Get Well Soon. Up until this point, we’d been using Nick Cave’s bleak score to  The Road as temp music, as well as some earlier ambient tracks Rael had prepared. Rael and I had been members of Thumpermonkey Lives! for a while; what we needed for this short […]

Get Well Soon is nearing the end of post production.  In fact, all that remains is the sound work.  Hopefully that will draw to a close this month and then we can get started submitting to festivals.  Here is a great little video made by Ian Baigent (co-director) using all of the slates filmed in […]

During mid-July, Ian arranged to meet again with Rory and Robin Freeman, (Ian’s band-mate in Hag). Robin is a chef – he supplied a number of ‘delicacies’ which were perfect for creating flash cuts of an unspecified surgical nightmare. I had plans to attend and make an ‘offal documentary’, but I thought better of it on […]

By early June, Ian’s son was home. Things had gradually returned to some sense of normalcy, and Ian had begun working on a shorter cut of the 30 minute assembly. Another 10 minutes of footage were shed. At that early stage, a part of me honestly thought that it couldn’t get any shorter. This cut […]

On May 6th, Ian picked up the rushes and took them back to the hospital. His son was still critically ill, (luckily the worst hadn’t happened, as I had anticipated); little Henry was stable at least. Having a chance to look through what we’d shot appeared to be a welcome distraction for Ian. In the […]

1-2 May – Second Weekend of Filming. The week in between both weekends of filming was pretty chaotic. Ian’s son was still critically ill.  We realised we needed to get on and produce a shot list based on his notes, and that we might also have to cut some corners in relation to coverage. Time […]
