I really appreciate Chris for sharing his experience with his peers. I'm a film maker too and I regret not video taping the Events that are associated with Winning a festival (I also won). But I was able to relive my experience thru your video blog. Thanks Chris....Marcus Aurelius

First of all congratulations to Chris. I entered living spirit to just spend 2 to 3 minutes. Believe me, could not stop - kept on viewing the shoot. The journey chris took through was quite interesting. We have just completed a movie and submitting our entry for the festivals. Good lesson to all of us to have a complete record like this-Whether you win it or not! Ashok Suvarna

I only saw the trailer for your short and I loved it. Congrats & best of luck at the Oscars!

Congratulations for the award you won for Gone Fishing. Also, wish you good luck for the oscar nomination.

Well done Chris. I went into living spirit just to have a quick squiz and watched all. Very interesting and a novel idea. Now I want to see 'Gone Fishing'. Best, Pete Matthews.

Congratulations for winning the award for Gone Fishing. Best luck for the oscar nomination.

Well done Chris!
I'm totally inspired by what you've done - I'm a British Actor who's moved into early pre-production stages ie. developing a feature script which I plan to shoot summer 09 - on a peanut budget - thanks so much for sharing your journey and for inspiring me to keep going!!

That's brilliant. Well done!!! So good to watch. Good luck pulling it all together for Oscars

That's great. Well done!!! That was so good to watch. Good luck pulling it together for the Oscars

Hi Chris, first I want to congratulate you! and second thanks for sharing this experience. I learned alot from this blog. I wish you the best for you future films to come. And before I forget, It was mentioned that the film would be screening in Miami in October, I live in Miami and would love to attend the screening.

and Thanks.

You were once a little upset with me Chris, when I suggested it was time Chris Jones author put down his pen to pick up a camera once again. Maybe now you can see why!

Well done, Chris and well deserved. Take it all the way.

Yours Aye

    About Chris

    I am just like you. Passionate. Crazy mad. For movies that is. Can’t get enough. Watching movies. Making movies. Talking about movies. Drives my girlfriend Lucia nuts! So yep. Passionate, crazy and mad. And yes, I am a little schizo too. Thing is, I love making films as much as I do teaching film making. Hence, Make Film, Teach Film. I have spent my life making films and sharing what I have learned with those who, like me, have been infected with the 'film virus'... I've made three feature films, action thriller ‘The Runner’, serial killer thriller ‘White Angel’ and paranormal horror ‘Urban Ghost Story’. I also co-created and authored The Guerilla Film Makers Handbook series, and currently there are six editions! Most recently, I made the multi-award winning and Oscars shortlisted ‘Gone Fishing’. I run film making workshops and my offices are at Ealing Film Studios where I am currently plotting my next big adventure…
