You can read the whole article which was published in the Yorkshire Post this week about Peekaboo here. Catherine Scott interviewed myself, Lesley Sharp and Shaun Dooley about the film. They showed lots of film stills in the paper too. Big thanks to Catherine Scott for the interview, to the cast and to Rachel McWatt for doing our PR and setting this up.

Encounters Film Festival highlights

Posted on 23rd of Nov '11 under Films: Fiction

Having just returned from Encounters Film Festival, I wanted to share some of the highlights with you. Firstly, I'd like to say what a fantastic festival it is, I saw so many great films and attended some great seminars.

My film The Girl with the World in Her Hair went down very well and played with some other lovely children's films, especially Tooth Fairy Affaird by Izabela Melamed from Bulgaria.

I was delighted that Michelle Arbon, who worked with me on Peekaboo won an award for her short film Above as Below in the Depict section, well done Michelle, a beautiful film.

I particularly enjoyed the masterclass with Carol Morely and Cairo Cannon and enjoyed seeing their new film Dreams of Life. They are such an inspiring pair and it was wonderful to hear them talk about their work and see excerpts of their previous films. I can't wait to see their new film Edge, in cinema's very soon.

I also loved Jez Benstock's The British Guide to Showing Off, which closed the festival on Sunday evening. A really fun film that made you want to dress up, go out and party!

Another highlight was the Bruce Robinson talk, which was sold out, but we were kindly given some free tickets from Carol Morely and Cairo Cannon, which was wonderful, because it was really inspiring and very funny. So glad we got to hear Bruce talk, what a great character he is.

I laughed so hard I almost cried watching Las Palmas, a short film by Johannes Nyholm, which won the Audience Award, unsuprisingly. You can see this on line, I'd really recommend it. I've never seen a jam packed cinema full of people laughing that hard in a long time.

I loved Long Distance Information by Douglas Hart, a fantastic short with a great pay off, and starring the wonderful Peter Mullen.

I watched so many great films it's hard to mention them all. But it was great to see so much talent out there.

I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone that worked so hard to put the festival together, they did an excellent job and made it a great experience for everyone that attended. I hope to be back there next year with Peekaboo.

Count down to Encounters

I'd like to say a huge thank you to our composer, Samuel Karl Bohn and cellist Nerys Richards for their hard work and enormous talent today recording our score for Peekaboo at Samuel's studio in London. It sounds absolutely stunning. I'm getting more and more excited about the film at each stage. The sound will be mixed and completed this week by Grant Bridgeman, then we've just CGI and a Grade to go and we'll be done. Wonderful! Thanks again to all those that have made Peekaboo happen.

Posted on 6th of Oct '11 under Films: Fiction

Our wonderful composer, Samual Karl Bohn, is currently working on a beautiful score for Peekaboo. However, to get the best possible result for our film, Sam would like to bring in cellists and violinists to record the music live. This will raise hugely enhance our film, but we need to raise the funds to do this.

So many people have helped us get this far by making donations. Please come on board and help us with these last stages. All donations have rewards, including your name in the credits. Please see our Peekaboo page for more details.

Come on board, be part of this amazing film.  Thanks.
