Briefly back in Malvern on the way home from an editing job in the Hairy Ford, I shot part of another videomatic with Ian using sketch models he had made of one of the airships and the town. And Lego men. Paying work is keeping me pretty busy at the moment, but you’ll see the finished thing here on the website as soon as it’s finished.
The premises next to the Tea Building used to be a biscuit factory. How good is that? This trivia was imparted to me at the NPA Business Breakfast yesterday morning. This is an event where schmucks like myself pay money to pitch their films to executives in front of other schmucks. Free drinks lacking again, but plenty of croissants.
Part of the appeal is the chance to watch other people pitch. I was relieved to see I haven’t been getting it wrong all these years. No-one else had a folder full of amazing concept art. (Engage Smug Mode.) By now I’ve got used to the laughter when I reveal how little the film will cost.
At least one of my pitch sessions looks like it may lead somewhere, but that doesn’t mean anything of course.
This morning I received Ian’s working drawings for the Wooden Swordsman, which are big enough to paper the walls of my bedroom.
