Mr. Vista

Mad-busy at the mo packing to move house AGAIN and do a stupid amount of work at the same time, so here’s a few words from my fellow Bournemouthian and top bloke Tim Clague… Check it out.——————————————————- An invitation for everyone to check out my new comedy web series – Mr Vista. It’s hosted here. The Dailymotion guys are giving it great support and it strikes me that the portal editors are now as important as festival programmers in the success of a film. Each episode features the silent clown style buffoonary of Mr Vista whose struggle with life is… Read More »Mr. Vista

Let’s Hear It For The Boys

Our fellow Scribes have been busy-busy lately! Christopher Stack, the half-brother of our own Danny Stack* (only he was spirited away at birth to LA, yet still leads a curiously parallell life involving movies to the Irish brother he never knew he had until the advent of The Scribosphere) has put his marvellous short An Exercise In Vigilance up online for all to see. He’s even inviting comments. I watched all seven minutes this morning and was impressed: the production values are great! The website too has some interesting info on how it was shot etc, so those of you… Read More »Let’s Hear It For The Boys

Digital Shorts: Q&A

Judging by the amount of emails I’ve received regarding this scheme, many blog readers are going for this so here’s a few quick questions I fired at scheme director Sarah-Jane Meredith at the beginning of this week:——————————————————————————-What’s the mission statement of Digital Shorts?To support short innovative ideas which present new ways of telling stories. How did you get such great companies like Aardman, PVA, The Engine Room etc involved in Digital Shorts?Because it presents a good opportunity for them to work with both the RSA and the UKFC on a nationally recognized initiative; because there is money on the table;… Read More »Digital Shorts: Q&A

Digital Shorts Opens

For those of you in the South West who might have missed it, Digital Shorts is open for applications. Don’t miss this opportunity to sell your idea to South West Screen – it’s a fantastic scheme and has already produced some stellar work in previous years. So if (like mine!) your heart yearns to produce your very own short film and you live in Devon, Dorset, Cornwall or Somerset, now is the time to get an idea together. I went to the Digital Shorts Roadshow back in July where I got the lowdown direct from programme directors Arilda Tymko and… Read More »Digital Shorts Opens

Digital Shorts: The Lowdown

As promised, my notes from last night’s Digital Shorts Roadshow with South West Screen. Enjoy.——————————————————————————–Present were Sarah-Jane Meredith and Arilda Tymko from South West Screen; there was a pretty poor turn-out, just twenty or so people, though perhaps this was because of the timing: I would imagine most people are at work at 4pm on a thursday. Of the few that were there, people had travelled quite far, from Totnes, Tavistock and even North Cornwall as well as Exeter itself. It was explained that Digital Shorts is a nationwide scheme, combining the talents of local screen agencies with the UK… Read More »Digital Shorts: The Lowdown
