Here I am, the early hours of Sunday morning, and I’m just a bit excited again, as I have received a formal invite to the first night of the BA Directing showcase that will serve to unveil the short film JUDGEMENT to those keen to see it.
This is a brief posting, for continuity purposes, and to keep that most keen of visitor (as well as anyone else who looks) to this blog, updated.
By the mid point of the week, I will have seen the 10 minute film that will hopefully show the talents of not only the director Kadeena but the actors (some of whom I was lucky to meet) and the crew, as well as genius producer, Rory Devlin, who worked flat-out for 3 days to film as well as the endless hours and days before and after to take JUDGEMENT from a rough, unnamed, partially formed idea and script to something I pray will serve as the start of big things for all concerned.
I only considered today in any great detail how odd it will feel seeing my name attached to anything like this, whatever anyone’s views are on the scale of it. But make no mistake, I haven’t ‘arrived’ or ‘made it’ by virtue of this mini triumph. I see it as a continuation of sharing my love of writing and storytelling with people. And merely the beginning of what I hope to be a fruitful working relationship with at least one person I’ve grown quite fond of. If not an entire crew, who together will entertain and provoke in equal measure.
If all this sounds triumphalist, or a bit daft, it isn’t meant to, and I beg your pardon. It’s just becoming a little more real, and by Thursday or the weekend, I’ll be able to at the very least give an honest review of the short film.
And one day soon, I’ll be able to do the same thing with ‘THREE KNOCKS’ (yes, that again) as I’m told in no uncertain terms that the next contact Andoni and Tiffany make with me will contain the completed short short (I bet that song’s in your head now 😜). And depending on what I see, that will determine whether I consent to them producing INEVITABILIS or whether I put it back out there and try my luck.
Thanks for reading and see you on the other side.
