I can't wait to see how the new short film I just wrote fairs. Not long till we shoot it now all being well. It should be a very interesting year for all three short films we're sending out.

Cheques are always nice though, like book royalty cheques - they don't come for ages and then they appear at once haha.

Chris,
I come from having worked at a film festival and also having my film play at them. I know that we had few resources and spent them strategically, promoting the films we thought we could draw the large crowds in and that we thought represented the best of what the festival had to offer. I wish it could be another way, but a small festival I think would rather take more good films than accept only the number whose audience they can fill, hoping that the filmmakers themselves will pick ip the slack. It would be nice, though, if filmmakers got a share of the ticket sales, as this would really make all that promo work pay off. There's nothing worse than being excited about a film for months only to attend a nearly empty screening.
Hope all is well,
michael

    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…
