Moët & Chandon - Lost vs BIFA won

Last night we celebrated as we won best short at the BIFAs & Daniel and I collected our award and a giant bottle of champagne (c/o of our sponsors) with BABY carefully and beautifully scripted in sparkly gems. What a thrill! We were surrounded by some of the UKs finest independent cinema talents. Helena Bonham Carter and Colin Firth were sat at the table beside us with their successful King's Speech contingent. But within this prestigious gathering, lurked a shameless individual or group of individuals who thought once the free bar closed down at 01:30am (after BIFA's & Moët's hugely generous 7 hours of free booze on tap) that they should help themselves to our BABY trophy and made away with the bottle in a flurry! I'm hoping the wonderful team at BIFA will find the empty bottle amongst the detritus and forward it on to me... Otherwise all I have left is this picture taken by the fabulous Helen Grace.

First Time Directors

I have been thinking about the stigma and the draw surrounding this title. All my feature projects - and I guess my shorts too in terms of “feature status” - are pretty much with first time directors. Sometimes I long to be at the stage where I can be working with more established directors – albeit them also being the first-timers I’m working with, only them (and me) having MADE that first feature!!! –. Get me out of perpetual development please…
