Gaëlle Denis and Ohna in Cannes

We wrapped on Friday night, spent Saturday returning props, mini-buses and reinstating locations and on Sunday morning first thing we hopped on a plane and here we are in Cannes!

Tired but enjoying the sunshine and the sea. Lots of meetings with Nathalie Algazi and Jakob Beckman on Gaëlle's Torino AdaptLab feature project.

First person we bumped into was the fabulous Robbie Ryan who is here with his dad with a feature he lit called Last Day On Mars. Also bumped into Mark Kozlowski who was working with us on Crocodile - Best DIT in town, looking far more relaxed in Cannes doing meetings to make his own film!

Get in touch if you are here we'd love to join you for a glass of rosé!


So far we have managed to see 2 films, For Those In Peril by Paul Wright and Baz Luhrmann's Great Gatsby (but we watched it in French!!). We also managed a red carpet evening courtesy of Nathalie and Marie who got us tickets for Only God Forgives, Nicholas Winding Refn's new film with Ryan Gosling & Kristin Scott Thomas. Very stylish and beautiful but pretty boring really, shame.

We're in production and development so things are always changing. Ohna will be keeping the news page and Twitter feed up to date. But if you want to know more please do get in touch!

BIFA Crocodile and Baby

BIFA has had a great idea in this period of Coronavirus lockdown - they have made all the BIFA nominated and winner shorts over the past 10 years available to view for FREE. How lovely to see BABY and CROCODILE up there and among such an exciting batch of films - great to be able to watch them all.

Films in LFF2019

This year my highlight of the festival was going to NFT1 to listen to an interview with Céline Sciamma, fabulously talented French writer director of Water Lilies, Tomboy, Girlhood (writer of the animated My Life as a Courgette) and in this year’s festival - her period piece Portrait of a Lady on Fire.

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…
