Well, that went fast. Seems like just yesterday that we set ourselves the challenge of just finishing the damn film and getting it out there. There was a blur of activity as there always is with these things and a MAD MAD dash to the finish line. James and I have had more than our fair share of nightmares on this film. But somehow, against all the odds - we made it. Actually "somehow" does a huge disservice to those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty… I could list them here, but really you know who you are. THANK YOU! x
I can't believe a WHOLE week has passed since the screening. I knew there's be a come down - but really there hasn't been time for one. Like I said at the Q and A, that premiere was not the end, it was the beginning. Now we need to sell the fucker. Not to a distributor, but to our audience - direct. We'll have more screenings (in fact we're on at Cluny 2 as part of Narc Fest this Saturday at 6). I'm looking into getting the soundtrack CD out and we'll be releasing the DVD later in the summer, but first MORE screenings. Where should we show it next? Do you have or know of a venue? Can you get a crowd together? Do you like Geordies and swearing? If yes, then get in touch. It's our film, we own the rights, we're not proud or precious - we'll show it (pretty much) anywhere. Also have some posters to put on the store, I know I said that a fortnight ago - but ye knaa av bin busy. Anyway here are some more photos of the night - the highlight of which was interrupting So What Robot's set to draw the raffle.

Will try our best to keep this busy during the shoot and post-production.
