It's a very busy weekend at Candle & Bell as our core team is split between 2 projects at either end of the country. Maria and Jonny are in London filming the fantastic London Screenwriters' Festival while Harry and Richard are in Newcastle working on our latest music video. To top the weekend off we have the halloween special of the short film night this monday too.
The London Screenwriters' Festival 2014
The London Screenwriters’ Festival is an annual three day conference for screenwriters. For the three days, over 1,000 screenwriters, filmmakers, producers, practitioners, actors and executives congregate to share ideas, build powerful relationships, hear pitches and get a creative shot in the arm.
Candle & Bell are delighted to be there this year filming some of the event that includes speakers such as Joel Schumacher, Ted Tally, William Nicholson, Claudia Myers, Pilar Alessandra, Charlie Brooker, and Griff Rhys Jones, amongst many others. It is a very special event and you should make the effort to attend in future if you can.
I learned as much from the people I met there as, I hope, they learned from me. I had great fun and, from what I saw and heard, I think they had fun too. If Chris asked me to jump off a cliff, I’d probably do it. As you Brits say, “Fucking, fucking brilliant!’
Meanwhile, on Tyneside
Harry is Directing a music video for Newcastle based alternative band Them Things and finishing up the last few days of shooting.
All the footage so far looks great and we can't wait to put the finishing touches on the project.
Halloween Short Film Night
After all that filming, Maria will be back in Newcastle on Monday night for our horror themed short film night at The Tyneside Cinema. Come along for some fun, thought provoking, and downright creepy short films.
