Aug 25, 2016 - That time of the afternoon when you need a drink to wake yourself up and ask if anyone else wants one and they all say yes... Doh!
Aug 16, 2016 - Sometimes indie filmmaking is a test of faith more than anything else; and getting our short film "Shadow" completed is testing our resolve more than any of our projects so far! Still, it's great experience for us as perpetual students of film making, with our core production team learning all about many different elements of film magic that we probably wouldn't have made ourselves learn without an extra push! Helping us to keep on believing in the face of it all... Another festival acceptance for our underdog of a film in 2015 - "Applause"! Delighted to have our little movie accepted as part of the Creation International Film Festival! We're on 9 - we hope to make it 10 sooner rather than later so we can enjoy updating the poster with a few more laurels! :-)
Aug 04, 2016 - "Shadow" is now out for mixing with our favourite Dr of Sound! Getting ever closer to the post - production finishing line (with a little (well, alotta!) help from our friends!). Meanwhile, back at HQ.... We're busy getting ready for release. First step - the poster! Here's a sneak peek at some concept artwork for our film offering of 2016; from the very beginning to pre - production to now - the crucial final stages of post - production!
Jul 27, 2016 - Busy working on the final visual elements for "Shadow" with some rotoscoping! Getting ever closer to locking down our short film offering of 2016!
Jul 27, 2016 - With "Shadow" in it's final stages of post production (soon to be with our favourite sound SME for a final mix!), "Truly Untold" in the essential casting stages (there is so much talent out there!), and a business to run so we can all afford to eat (and pay the Man!), it's all a bit manic here at Filim..! Not that we'd have it any other way, but there's nothing like a little boost to keep us all going through the madness and occasional crisis of faith..... Delighted that our 2015 short film, "Applause" has been accepted into it's 8th festival! Well done and thank you to the wonderful cast and crew who gifted us with their creative energy and made this underdog of a movie a quiet success!
May 10, 2016 - All done with ADR for Shadow! Tonight... It's all about foley, in true, DIY Filim Style! Helping us keep the faith are TWO more acceptances into film festivals for our 2015 short film, "Applause"! Delighted to have been selected by the Ouchy Film Awards & the Shortpole London International Film Festival!
Apr 13, 2016 - Our blingin' sound studio is all set and ready to go! Must be Day One of ADR for "Shadow"!
Apr 01, 2016 - The first rough cut of shadow is in! Now comes the difficult part... Meanwhile, our little movie "Applause" from last year has earned another laurel from another festival... The DSOFF - The Direct Short Online Film Festival! Great to be part of such an international line-up of short films!
Mar 23, 2016 - Doing the fun stuff as we design our title sequence for "Shadow"! In the meantime, "Applause" has been accepted into another festival! This time it's TOFF - The Online Film Festival! Delighted to be part of this celebration of independent filmmaking!
