Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been shooting the cast and crew interviews for the Going To Hell documentary. Tonight I did Chris Hatherall’s. When we’d fiinished I turned my mobile back on and discovered that Aimee had called me from New York. I knew immediately it had to be good news because we normally only communicate by e-mail. Unlike Richard Herring, my expectations were not confounded. Aimee was calling to tell me that a lady in Acqusitions at a major Hollywood Studio (I’m not saying which one for now) totally loved Soul Searcher. Apparently she spent half an hour telling Aimee how much she loved the script, the acting, the cinematography – everything. She read the press kit twice, cover to cover. She wanted to know all about me, who represents me, where I’m based, what I’d done before. (I’m sending her a copy of The Beacon…. not really, of course.) The upshot is, she’s going to pass the film on up the chain to the Acquisitions Manager.
On a slightly less fantastic level, Soul Searcher‘s going to be on BBC Midlands Today on Thursday night.
