Making Movies | Linda’s Timeline

Linda's Maia Timeline

I forgot to add this picture to the Sardinia Maia workshop entry. Linda Beath's initiation to her group of emerging producers was the average making-a-movie-timeline, from inception to when an audience will sit in front of a screen and watch it. I might have posted it a bit too small to read here (click on it & it opens bigger), but it starts in April 2015 with an idea for a film and ends in February 2022 with some money trickling back to someone (although god knows who...) once the sales people have got it out to a few places for people to go and watch it - starting in January 2020. So basically - you gotta look 7 years ahead.

And I guess the wisdom we took from that was "learn to pace yourself" "More urgency, less haste!". "Yes ok I'll have that glass of wine".

I think Linda would agree...

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…
