My first short film, “Into The Light”, has now won a number of trophies and awards which is a credit to everyone who was involved in the project. Winning awards is always gratifying but for me it’s more important that the film gets seen and finds it’s audience, something which is arguably more difficult to do. Having said that, when entering a film in the amateur film making circuit you are almost always guaranteed to get judges comments. Feedback is so important to learn how your audience connected with your film. Read More...

Into the light got it’s first public screening at the Bluescreen event hosted in the Cube microplex in Bristol last night. This was the first time I have seen my work projected on a large cinema screen with a decent sound system. Although it was a little nerve racking, the whole experience was amazing. Having the facility to have your own films screened in a cinema is a real bonus, and as nature intended, so to speak.
The whole evening was entraining with a DJ before the main event, then there was a film with which had it’s soundtrack re-scored live, courtesy of the Cube Orchestra. It was also very interesting seeing other locally made films and having the chance to meet other filmmakers. I note that the Cube has a campaign to try and get people to pledge money to buy it, preventing the building being knocked down and redeveloped. Absolutely need to get behind this and prevent it becoming another fallen jewel from the arts crown.

Yesterday, “Into The Light” finally got to see the light after nearly 9 months gestation! It was shown with the other four directors versions of the film, at the Bristol Film & Video Society club night. Overall I was pleased with the screening as the levels and colours of the images when projected looked as I intended. The final grading of this short film was done using Technicolor Color Assist which integrates very nicely into Premiere Pro and provides for a very fast workflow.

This is a first for me. Having read the script and turned up for the initial meeting, with my role already assigned as camera operator, I was asked whether I would like to make a version of the film called “Into The Light”. Having seen the film in my head on the way to the meeting, there was only one answer I would give. Read More...
