Two months since the last blog. Two months? Not sure I'm cut out for this.
The two month gap was mainly because the back end of 09 saw me come pretty close to putting in the hours required for what my enviro friend Andy calls 'a proper job'. I shot my first ever short film. It was a collaboration with my creative partner dan (I like working with people called dan). That's him, holding the camera.
It's about an old lady who's living alone missing someone. Then she gets in a bath of milk and dies. There is a bit more to it than that. /and it's not as funny as it sounds...
Actually, I'm really proud of it. We have our first cut and once we beg some post production time, we'll show it at as many film festivals as possible. We were really lucky to get Huw Walters - a two time bafta award winning DoP to film it, and Margaret John - best known as Doris in Gavin and Stacey - to brilliantly play our old lady, Cleo. Her younger self was played by Elin Leyshon who stepped in for us very late, but was more than we could have hoped for.
It's called No More Milk and will be playing at a film festival near you soon.
As well as that, I was also doing the day job. So, a little bit of this
some of this
and plenty of this
And to keep myself sane, the ubiquitous country walk.
