You’re probably wondering why there hasn’t been an entry for so long. It’s not good news, I’m afraid. With only two weeks to go until our scheduled start date, we find ourselves in a position where we’re several grand short of the budget we need to be able to shoot the film. The project’s now officially on hold until after Christmas. It remains to be seen if any Herefordshire businesses will come through for us on the funding front, but there is a very real possibility that this film will now never get made, not least because I’m not sure where my career as a lighting-cameraman will be by the time the New Year arrives. Doors are starting to open for me and I may simply not have the time to make this film next year.
It’s the old, old story. Boys write film. Boy has to drop out of project. Boy can’t raise enough money to make film. Film is on hold. Shame on you, Herefordshire businesses.
