Watch Here – Beeban Kidron at Ted giving an incredibly eloquent talk about the power of film. It’s mostly about her film club scheme – but is incredibly inspiring as a filmmaker as well.
So the day before our big event in Bristol I finally get hold of a (semi)working computer… I’ve been a bit quiet the past few weeks on account of the tragic demise of any electronic devices with keyboards (tablets/mobiles do not count – I tried to write a blog post with my mobile and gave up after about three minutes). But yes, I am now ‘back’ just in time for it to ‘end’. I missed … Continue reading
Here’s my ‘one minute pitch’… Rose Coloured Lily: Synopsis Lily is a seven year old dreamer. She’s an imagineer and expert in adventure and she’s determined to remain enchanted with her world even though it’s starting to fall down around her. Ever the optimist, when Lily and her mum Kate find themselves homeless and put up in a grotty B&B Lily transforms it into an exotic holiday experience for herself complete with pink sunglasses and … Continue reading

Mini-Mood Reel Lily & Kate Mini Mood-Reel, alas commitments of the dull kind mean I don’t have time to sort out the horrendous compression on this…sorry! Will re-upload in a few days (am intending on adding a bit more to it as well) please don’t judge my technical abilities yet! x
I’d been thinking a lot about the outline before scripting, so I decided to have a go. Over the past few days I’ve been sitting staring at blank pieces of coloured paper and turning them into little notes for ideas that I like that may fit in to the story: Yellow paper for stage directions e.g. ‘O/S Fighting heard’ Pink paper for lines/dialogue/essential conversation Green paper for drawings of scenes/images I wanted to include It … Continue reading
Perhaps it would be useful to start with the phrase that keeps popping up in my head every time I think about the FilmWorks scheme and the fact that I get to be part of it.. “Oh my!”. Not to continue sounding like a period drama heroine but golly-gumdrops-by-gosh-jove-on-a-stick am I excited to be part of this! I think we were especially lucky at Bristol as FilmWorks was launched as part of encounters so the … Continue reading
