Watch the video first…
No really, watch it! OK, so it’s all over. We won third prize and I am personally very happy that LEAVING, a powerful, sensitive and incredibly researched and directed film took the first prize. It really is EVERYTHING that this genre of film should be. You can watch a trailer for Leaving here.
My real prize last night is that quote from Rutger Hauer, which is very high praise from the guy I watched as a teenager in Blade Runner, thinking, ‘I hope one day I can get to those dizzying heights of film making...’ That will be winging its way to the posters very soon.
So now, after editing the video, it's back to bed to nurse my hangover – I am such a lightweight!
BLOG UPDATE - Oh and I learned on GREAT tip for the next Guerilla Film Makers Handbook. If you are lucky enough to win an award or festival, if there is a party, loiter by the exit while holding your award – EVERYONE passes you by and feels like saying hello, it’s like power networking!
Onwards and uwpards!
