But I’ll tell you what we’ve been upto, just coz we’re rather proud of it:
Séverin Tibi, Cannes-based film producer, has received a whopping £20,000 budget to produce her short dramedy ROUGE, which is currently being developed, crewed, and cast;
3 screenwriters received a Development Grant for their Feature or TV pilot scripts:
MY BROTHER IS A MERMAID by Alfie Dale, PARADISE BY WAY OF JORDYN by Amadeus Redha, and FREE TRADERS by Jo Gatford:
2 filmmakers received Completion Funding to get their shorts through post-production:
RUN OUTS by Dhillon Shukla, and THE FRIENDSHIP OF FISH, by Liz Van Ingen, Sherice Griffiths, and Neal McAndrew.
And 3 films got their Festival submission-fees covered:
THE SNIP by Adam Gregory Smith, UNDER THE BLUE by Linda Ludwig & James Curle, and TREES by Jan Ruppe-Rahman
But even before this, 3 shorts-film projects who won 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in our GET IT MADE Project Competition last winter, have all been filmed:
CRUSTS, by Ben Ferrity and Alfie Dale, is all wrapped up and has even had its debut screening;
OPENING UP, by Lorna Riley and Oz Arshad is all neat & polished, and SATISFACTION, by Christopher Buckley, Bailey Tom Bailey and Marek Lichtenberg is well into post-production.
We LOVE stories. And we adore filmmakers. It is our mission to boldly go… no, that’s those dudes in monochrome onesies. Our mission, and we’ve definitely chosen to accept it, is to support filmmakers along the arduous path of building their creative careers, and getting as many good stories out into the world (and onto a screen) as we possibly can.
Join us. We make movies happen.
