Well it's been a very cold but very busy month. I've just finished a new TV campaign for Dunlop's golfing collection featuring champion golfers Darren Clarke and Lee Westwood. Shot in a tiny pub in Epsom the advert demonstrates their golfing skills to humorous effect. They'll be on air sometime in April and on my website soon after.
Simply Rob seems to be going from strength to strength. I am happy to annouce the films London premiere will be at the 19th Raindance Film Festival before going on to screen the 24th Emonton International Film Festival and then the 10th San Francisco Documentary Festival. Whilst I'd love to attend all these festivals it's just not going to be possible due to commercial obligations. I'm aiming to attend Raindance before then heading to San Franscisco for the documentary festival shortly before my 30th birthday. Nice way to see out my 20s.
Simply Rob now has it's screening dates for the 31st Cambridge Film Festival. It's screening with a selection of 5 shorts under the title Let's Talk About Sex. The first screening is on Thursday 15th September at 10:30am. The second screening will be on Saturday the 17th of September at 11pm. Bookings will be available from the 2nd of September so get in there early to avoid disapointment.
This will be it's world premiere so I'll be very excited to see the film with an audience.
Simply Rob's festival run begins this September with it's opening screening at the Austin Gay & Lesbian Film Festival. It will then go on to screen at the Wine Country International Film Festival in Santa Rosa California before having it's UK premiere as the 31st Cambridge International Film Festival.
Work permitting I will be attending the Austin screening before embarking on a mammouth drive across New Mexico to attend the Wine Country screening in California, before then dashing back to the Cambridge screening which is near my home town Bury St Edmunds in East Anglia.
My next short film 'Strange Weather' is going ahead at the end of August. The film tell the story of two lost souls who witness a rare phenomenon that fills a gap in their lives and somehow brings them together. It will star actress Maxine Peake and actor Lex Shrapnel in the lead roles (as well as some other familiar faces) and will be shot in rural East Anglia. The film will be the first production by my new production company which will launch at the time of the films completion.
