Crocodile UK Premiere at Encounters - C4 Prize Best UK Short

After its success at GIFF in Mexico, Crocodile finally had its UK Premiere in Bristol where it was awarded the Channel 4 Best of British Short. Gaëlle and I were really thrilled and really enjoyed our few days in Bristol. It was great visiting with Sara Sinton who used to be my boss at production company Mighty, and now has given all that up to work as an NHS nurse in a Bristol hospital and now is married to a lovely kitchen maker Hugo and more recently has a delightful son Archie who I met for the first time on this visit - which was extra special as Sara was pregnant when I was last there with Douglas Hart's Long Distance Information back in 2012, so it was great to see them all.

The festival was lively as always and it was great to see the programme of shorts and hang out with Dawn (from Dazzle) - who is looking really fabulous, Will Massa and his Brazilian delegation, Derry (from Network Ireland), Becky Mark Lawson and many more. It was really nice hanging out with Becalelis Brodskis an old animator friend of Gaëlle's now based in Cornwall.

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…
