Somebody to Love wins 'Best Short Film' at Yellow Fever Film Festival!




Hey Everyone,

It's been far too long since I've done an entry. So I'm pleased to say I have a new entry and something worth writing about too!

to Love recently won 'Best Short Film' at the Yellow Fever Film
Festival! The festival was organised by George Clarke a man very much
after my own heart. There were some great films shown so it was an
honour to be chosen for Best Short.

Festival was held in Northern Ireland so I was able to attend along
with my family. I had a great time at the festival and it was a
pleasure to be surrounded by like minded people. The festival
organisers are a truly wonderful group of people and are film-makers in
their own right, their feature film 'The Knackery' was premiered at the
climax of the festival.

The Festivals guest of honour was AnD's
own Mike Leeder who gave some very informative Q&A's and was
generally an all round great person to be around for the festival. Mike
will be doing a piece on the festival for Impact in the next issue so
keep an eye out.

For my part I was asked to participate in
some Filmmaker Q&A's, where the lucky festival goers got to hear my
inane and incoherent ramblings about film-making which were nicely
offset by Mike Leeder and the director of the feature film 'The
Bodyguard: A New Beginning', Chee Keong Cheung, both of whom were clear
and consise in their answers and have actual experience to speak from.

my girlfriend Terumi was able to attend and enjoyed the fest too. I was
very happy and proud that her and my parents were there to see me get
the award. They put up with a lot from me during the making of the film
so it was good for them to be there to see me get some kind of reward
for my efforts and their suffering. So thanks again guys!

A big
shout out to my cast for the film all of whom were very popular with
the people at the fest who saw the film. There were a lot of action
fans at the festival very impressed by Philip and James' moves and a
lot of men who were impressed by Yennis!

Thanks as well to
everyone involved in the film. I couldn't have done it without them and
a large part of the win is down to their efforts. Especially thank you
to Jayson Li who was tireless in his promotion of the films win and to
Radwynn and Koko for their thanks.

I hope to be doing more
entries in the weeks to come and I hope to have more things to write
about too. In the meantime everyone take care and thanks for reading!
