Back With A Bang

Back after a week off and I did some writing last night. I felt fresh and well up for it, so I shall be cracking on again tonight.

Two of my short films have been picked up by Celtic Storm Films for shooting later this year. Jump will be the first to shoot sometime in the summer. Ooh, I'm so excited I could poop my pants...no really, I could.

Congratulations! :)

I was wondering, how were they picked up? From your website? Or did you present the ideas to the company?

Excellent news Dom!

The films being made, not the pant pooping...

Michelle: I found the director on Icewhole and asked him if he was interested in reading some of my stuff. He ended up picking two out of five scripts I sent him, which will be made with another six short films (not mine) over the next year. I chose him because he'd show previous short films at Cannes and got a good reception :-)

so happy for you! Well done.

Thanks, Dom :) I've been thinking a lot recently about how I can get out there and gain experience, and one way I've been doing that is by sourcing out film-makers, such as student film-makers, who need scripts writing for them. I can see now how working on my own original scripts and then sourcing out people to make them will also be a good way of getting "out there" :)

Best of luck with your shorts - I hope you have great success with them :)

Great news Dom. AND launched at the next Sequel to Prequel will be a short film competition with a cash prize for the top three entrants.

I will keep you posted on the dates for Sequel to Prequel as they may have to move from the 10th June.
