It’ll be screened at Suffolk cinemas throughout June and July so make sure you go if you’re in the county. Tickets are a fiver.

Enjoy and please share.

WIth Love From Suffolk

 

Padding out. I mean, strengthening the narrative.

Happy new year, what’s left of it. Exciting times here at Old Git central.

It’s nice to report writing projects are starting to queue up since making this film (premiere 15th Feb) and people talking about filthy lucre which is always promising.

I’m just over an hour into a full length film. It has a beginning, a middle, currently two endings and the possibility of a sequel… assuming it ever gets made.

I was approached to do something dark and tense (not really my genre) so wrote a couple of example scenes thinking they’d hate it but alas, they loved it. So what began as a writing exercise has now become quite enjoyable.

Screenwriting seems to be finally providing the answer to that lifelong nagging question: what are you going to do when you grow up? Although I do feel a bit (a bit?) … a massive fraud since I’ve always avoided the whole cinema experience thing. Like many, I just don’t enjoy or need that huge screen with badly positioned speakers and people around me chattering, rustling crisp bags and slurping drinks, texting and doing what cinema goers feel obliged to do.

But now he’s here… and this time he’s actually installed a large screen and a projector in his man cave.

Always loved film, me.

More Suffolk Love

I am currently watching in awe as the team behind With Love From… Suffolk take on the Herculean task of making a film happen.

It’s slightly surreal in that I’ve created some characters and these FILMSuffolk guys are clearly more determined than I could ever be to bring them to life on screen. How fantastic that I don’t have to do that all by myself!

I’ve just been on a location recce for my script ‘Back on Board’ (affectionately known in the production office as Bob) and I think it’ll be a stunning piece of cinematography.

We have some pretty experienced filmmaking experts behind the project. Hollywood director Graham Baker(Alien Nation), our Director of Photography will be Steven Hall (Imitation Game, Warhorse) and many other talented individuals are offering their services.

It’s going to be amazing! If you live in Suffolk, get involved! And why not help us crowd fund it.

With Love From Suffolk

Well, here we go then!  It seems I’m now a screenwriter after my script was chosen for inclusion into what we all hope will be a gorgeous film set in the beautiful county of Suffolk, England.

It’s a project close to my heart not just because my script was chosen but because Suffolk is where I was born and raised, spending some idyllic youthful days free-ranging hedgerows and rivers, setting fire to things, falling out of trees and generally dicing with death on a fairly regular basis.

And the people? Traditionally we’ve a reputation for being a bit wary of ‘outsiders’ though I’d suggest that’s simply us checking to see whether you like a laugh or not, y’know, after all the Viking rape, pillage and  street-naming that went on.

But hey, it’s 2015 and time we shared the great warmth and affection we have for the place. I hope you enjoy the stories we present and please consider supporting the crowdfunding initiative.

It’ll be a summer of filming and, all being well, a launch on Valentine’s Day 2016.
