One week before shoot

Today is officially one week before we start shooting Crocodile.

Next week is a short week and we will be throwing ourselves into picking up all the loose ends - including finding our actress for the role of ANGELA, and an entrance to a zoo. On the art department front, Drika Raposo Mattos (our dedicated art researcher, prop finder and set dresser), Gaelle and I have been over the moon about Production Designer Carly Reddin, coming on board. She just finished designing other BFI short The Line. Carly and Drika have been doing an amazing job pulling everything together - Including these amazing flip flops, which - believe it or not - you can eat!!

Production has been intense and Caterina and I were sad to say good bye to Samantha Waite on Friday who has been absolutely amazing but has to start a new job on Eastenders next week, but I am excited to see Sophie Venner on Tuesday who will be back from San Francisco and I'm sure she'll be delighted to see we are joining forces with Michael Gould once again who co-starred in Room 8 with Tom Cullen - which we just finished and delivered a few weeks ago. Not to mention the rest of the impressive cast we have attached so far...

David Ungaro, super talented DOP, will be coming in from Paris on Tuesday evening and then our team will be more or less complete... Paul Hardcastle is on board as our editor.

We are excited to be so close to shooting and fingers crossed it all goes well.

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…
