Here it is. I hope the quality is now good enough to view on your monitors. This film was a collaboration between me, Gene (my wife now!) and Patrick Wright. Bim joined in as our director and got this vehicle moving with his experience. Of course, none of this wouldn’t be possible without the volunteers who have made a fantastic effort to make this film possible as we were on £2,000 budget
By the way, It looked miles better on the big silver screen. We didn’t have any experienced lights person hence the moody and surreal atmosphere. I think it actually added flavour to the film.
It was memorable experience and I so wanted to carry on after that if it wasn’t for the need to earn a decent crust. As soon as I can afford a camcorder and more powerful computer, I am going to give film-making another go and create more films as I really enjoyed it.
Happy viewing and credits to all who was involved or contributed towards it.
