Regarding the following post – PROFIT&LOSS is the working title for the Financial Empire fights Fairground Dynasty, love story in a travelers illegal encampment idea I did the elevator pitch for at the last workshop. Cheers John
Well, I finally got there with the mood board/rip reel. Made a few mods today following weds post pitch discussion. The footage includes some of the stuff we shot off the Go Pro head cams at Nottingham Goose Fair, also the stuff we shot from the crowd on ex1’s. The shoot was for a taster short called “Goose FEAR” that’s now in post. For the Sheffield and Bristol contingent, Nottingham Goose fair, is no longer … Continue reading
I have put a series of freeze frames from the Goose FEAR shoot up on the Facebook site, here: http://www.facebook.com/GooseFEAR2012 Goose FEAR will be a taster short for the feature project. So I guess this works in a similar way to a mood board.

For me “Killing them Softly”, suffered the same way, though not to the same degree. The underlying political dimension was very interesting for me, as it resonates with the ideas that underpin my FilmWorks project. My film idea has a message based around the inequality in … Continue reading
Great first session in Nottingham, lovely to meet everyone. A really inspiring night. I learnt a lot in a short time and am already employing some new thinking on my project. Great to meet Scotty, a fellow first time documentary maker that makes it to TV and also fellow long term Glastonbury workforce member! I hope to exploit that link in the project somewhere Scotty. The workshop session we had with Sophia’s project was really … Continue reading
