The old saying goes “If you look after the pennies, the pounds will look after themselves“… you could apply this to the short film I worked on last year, 2p, as it has been selected by the The Arizona Film Festival this year.
From its small budget and a lot of heart from the cast and crew, 2p is certainly reaping its rewards.
Well done to everyone involved and a big thanks to producer Larry Cowan (Lamb Films) and Director Will Maloney for letting me play the role of Billy!
Keep an eye for 2p coming to festival near you soon!
At 9.00am on a Saturday the last thing most people would be doing is volunteering for a two day workshop at the BBC. But myself and around 150 others from Belfast’s film industry were doing just that very thing this weekend.
Elliot Grove from the Raindance Film Festival was in Belfast to give a workshop on ‘Making the Low Budget Feature’.
Although I’m normally on the other side of the camera I thought this would be an opportunity to meet directors and producers (basically people who could give me a JOB!) and I wasn’t disappointed…
Elliot pitched the two days perfectly. We were left inspired and full of energy for our next projects (all “at various stages of development”…)
I would just like to say thank you to Sarah Stack at the BBC and Ursula Devine at NI Screen for organising the event, and to Elliot for a great two days.
To all who were there, stay in touch: #lotono
