The conquering heroes were all smiles until they realised what Gregory Rinaldi had in store as an encore. Having overcome pain and fatigue to complete the West Highland Way in just under 5 days, the Manwalk 2012 team are taking on Ben Nevis today. Why? The only conclusion we can draw here at BRAG is [...]
It was with a heavy heart, not to mention heavy limbs, that the Manwalk 2012 team set off this morning for the last 15 miles but happily they all did, and they all made it to Fort William this afternoon. Many congratulations from everyone at BRAG and no doubt Enham. A brilliant achievement. And loving the [...]
Happily the whole team have survived day four, and the combined lack of mobility and enthusiasm for Guinness at the end of the day have apparently caused much local hilarity. Tomorrow sees the team completing 100+ miles and conquering the West Highland Way. Followed by Ben Nevis by way of digestif…
Unsurprisingly it gets harder every day. The team were walking for 10 hours yesterday and today is set to be the hardest day yet. Everyone is exhausted and although the sun has been punishing the promised rain today will probably be even worse. Manwalk 2012 is raising profile and funds for Enham. Please support them [...]
Well 60 miles, a lot of midges and too many blisters later, and the team have arrived at Bridge of Orchy. To recap, Gregory and his six merry men are taking on the West Highland Way in support of Enham, an inspirational UK disability charity. Only two days left to go boys… [...]
Day one ended with the team looking somewhat more weary than they did setting off, when it was smiles all round. Apparently the West Highland Way is a beast! You can support the team on justgiving – they’re putting themselves through this for the UK charity Enham.
Manwalk is an exciting new project devised by Gregory Rinaldi, one of the producers of the award-winning documentary feature film The Mountain Within. An endurance experience set against the stunning backdrop of the West Highland Way and captured on film, Manwalk’s missions are to promote and raise money for a brilliant charity, Enham, and showcase [...]

Delighted to announce another Get Well Soon screening – at The Antelope in Tooting on Sunday 4 September at 7pm.
We probably sound like a linguistically challenged announcement on continuous loop as we keep repeating that Get Well Soon is an artistic masterpiece. But it is, and happily others not only agree but also express themselves rather more creatively. Their reviews follow and unlike most BRAG posts we’re going to keep updating this one, lest [...]

Monday turned out to be the day of hotel terraces – the Grand (we knew where it was hiding this time) and the Majestic – and yachts – Kodak and Pinewood. Nicely glamorous, but much more suits than celebrities, you can almost smell the deals being closed. Judging by the daily reports from the likes [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
