Making Get Well Soon – Part 5

Late Feb /March 2010 – Location, funding, crew and camera Towards the end of February, Ian and I began looking for a Location. In retrospect, this was one of the most difficult parts of the whole project, as we had very limited funding; a lot would depend on luck in finding a place that looked right, and […]

Making Get Well Soon – Part 1

In the Summer of 2009 I started writing what was projected to be a very low-budget short film with an editor friend.
