I am sorry I have been neglecting this blog/diary. There has been a lot going on recently, mostly to do with ‘The Drive’ which has been selected in a number of film festivals and gaining a win at a film festival in West Virginia, USA.

The Drive also was screened as part of the Edinburgh Fringe at the Nightpiece film festival. I was taking a film course in Edinburgh and also attended the film festival. It was quite an experience and everybody should try and go to the Edinburgh Film Festival. You are spoilt for choice for what to do.

However, it is quite expensive, hence we took our old camper and camped just outside Edinburgh. Luckily it wasn’t too wet as we did get some spectacular thunderstorms whilst we were there.

The Film Course run by BFI was really good. My short story was chosen to be made into a film . It was called ‘Motormouth’. The course was over 6 days with the @BFI & @ScreenEdinburgh. I wrote the script. An intense, educational process and I’m more than pleased with the outcome. I hope you like it.

We also had a successful screening at CineShots in London. There was a question and answer session and we received very favourable feed back for ‘The Drive’ Todd came along and it was a good night.

Most recently I went to the London Art House Film Festival. It was their first year and it was a truly International experience with film makers from Brazil, USA, and Uganda . I also went to the gala which was good fun.

There is another screening coming up soon in Wales. More of that later. In the meantime here is the latest poster with our current laurels.
