Festival entries

Chris Chidlow is taking some time out from his normal film making stuff to do some production assistance on my film, principally co-ordinating festival entries.

It's such good fun *not* to do all that paper work but to merely view the incredibly organised google spread sheet that Chris has made get filled up with festivals, deadlines and links. Having always done this myself it occurs to me that getting people to help is an excellent plan. I wonder if it's something about animators that makes us think we have to be a one (wo)man band, or maybe it's just me.

Anyway, this has been all such good fun that it slightly by-passed me that I would have to get my tush in gear and send off the (rough cut) screener to the first batch of festivals in September. Which, as it turns out, is the day after tomorrow.

Green Man Festival

Haven't written for a while due to lovely weekends away in London and at the Green man festival. In the intervening time I've been frantically plugging away at my film.

Anyway, two things to say about Green Man (apart from that it was wonderful).

1] 7 inch cinema were there, screening lovely films including Sleepwalking Through The Mekong which we loved. They also had an incarnation of The Travelling Picture Show so we were treated to a morning of family friendly cinema whilst lying on cushions. Yum.

The second thing is that my husband Jont was there with his Roaming Rotisserie, selling roast chickens and potatoes and he'll be at Bestival too. Thought you should know.

This is from the end of part two, where Jamie is talking about which form of synaesthesia he would rather have.

Glitter effect sorted!

I've had good fun making my own glitter brushes in painter (lots of impasto) but eventually today I took my ex-student Fabian's advice and got out an SLR camera, some glitter and some green paper. It worked! Hooray.
