Outtake video from our Swansea Bay Film Festival acceptance speech!

05/19/2010

After our success at the London Independent Film Festival where we won Best Sci Fi/Horror film, we are delighted to be nominated for Best Film at the Swansea Bay Film festival.

Once again our film is up against other films made for budgets one hundred times the amount Nuryan was made for. We can’t make the awards evening because we are out filming The Sweet Shop, but we have sent through a video acceptance speech and as you can see from the video below, we had a bit of trouble recording it – take a look at our outtakes!

Today in the studio, we have the style and creative meeting for the new film, The Sweet Shop. To get to this stage we have completed extensive research and have looked in great detail at the script and cast. As well as drawing on our previous experiences within film, most recently the experimental Thriller Nuryan. Check out the trailer below, we had forgotten how much fun this film was to make.

Lesson number one.. Shoot this film in warm May, not the bleak, cold winter months……
