As the New Year swiftly approaches, now’s the perfect time for me to comment on the past few months on the Filmworks scheme. This is just a short update from me for now.
Like most people, I’ve taken these few weeks after our meeting in Bristol to reflect. For me Filmworks, especially the meet-up, was an intense experience, which was extremely enjoyable.
Some ideas that I’d pitched to participate in Filmworks have been developed, critiqued, pitched and shelved; new ideas have been developed, critiqued pitched and are still in the running.
Through this process, I have met new friends from the Filmworks Nottingham cohort, positive and passionate colleagues from Bristol and Sheffield, supportive mentors and exciting business contacts.
The scheme has been fruitful for my production slate, along with my existing projects, I’m now attached to further two projects as producer, and I also have a new business partner.
I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank all of the mentors and the Filmworks collective for devising this scheme and providing such a great opportunity to meet such a talented set of people.
However you decide to see in 2013, I wish you all a Happy New Year when it comes, and I look forward to connecting with you all again in the near future!
