First blog entry - Toby and Hettie make a movie

Welcome to our blog for our films, but at the moment specifically for our latest film L'amour de Montparnasse.  It's our second major short film that we worked on together.  Toby as writer/director and myself as producer.  Our first film Alone about the Universe is 18 minutes and a sci-fi drama.  It was our first film that we sent off to festivals and at the time we were very new to the whole circuit so had no plan or strategy.  We picked up two international awards for best short and excel...

We speak to the director of Bunny and the Bull : Paul King

We speak to the director of Bunny and the Bull. Fans of The Mighty Boosh rejoiced at the news that series director Paul King was turning his gaze to the big screen. Featuring predictably great comic turns from Noel Fielding, Julian Barratt and Richard Ayoade, Bunny and the Bull is sure to please the legions of Boosh obsessives out there. But King is by no means playing it safe in his transition to feature directing, as he explained when we met this week. Did you always imagine ...

Interview with Clive Owen at the BFI London Film Festival

It's the BFI London Film Festival and I'm at the BFI Southbank to meet Clive Owen. We can all just google Clive Owen to read about his achievements as a BAFTA, Golden Globe winner and for his extensive work in the film and tv industry. Therefore I thought I should pick out some goodies from the interview, that you don't read about everywhere else... Born 1964 in Coventry, Clive Owen was a man who didn't have it all set in his early life. With a father who left the family when Owen was three...

Men who stare at Goats - The London Film Festival

Well, what can you say when you've got  George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, Ewan McGregor and Kevin Spacey in one film.  Add to that a comedy based on life being stranger than fiction. The movie is inspired by UK journalist, Jon Ronsons non-fiction best seller, exploring the bizarre activities of a secret, elite division of the US military trained in psychic powers and psychological warfare' techniques.  It is a roller coaster ride through a quirky, crazy, absurd, nostalgic adventure that amuse...

London Fest afternoon tea at the Mayfair - so lovely British!!

One real gem at the festival is the tea ceremony. A few afternoons, members of the press gather with filmmakers and actors to chat and have tea. It's a very inspiring and just lovely event and a great opportunity to meet in a more relaxed setting. Today I had the pleasure to indulge in scones and tea with Danish filmmaker Martin Pieter Zandvliet. His film "Applause" is a dark, heartfelt, but also hopeful story about a mother who is recovering from alcoholism and desperat...
