I'm mad busy producing my first music video as part of the 2weeks2makeit competition sponsored by Screen West Midlands. Following an excellent series of speakers on Friday afternoon in a workshop session at Fazeley Studios - 12 local bands were paired off with 12 local film crews and given 2 weeks to make a great promo.
I was quite anxious about what sort of band the Stickleback Productions team would get paired with but am delighted to have been paired with Wise Blood who are a great band and a nice, helpful bunch of guys.
I'm now busy arranging cast, locations and resources for a shoot on Friday and Saturday for their track TV Dinner Lady which is a very dark and gory urban tale!
I'm also delighted to be doing my first promo with the help of Director of Photography James Stoneley who made Seconds Out the last film I wrote and produced look so good.
I think we have a great track, a great crew and with the help of some great actors and helpful local businesses such as Bar Bluu will end up turning out a great video.
