Here’s the finished film itself.  It’s stupid.  


My “storyboards” I sent to animator Joe Collins.

Animation -



I wrote all 55 or so comments on cards and spent a couple of days moving them around - it was pretty obvious as soon as someone wrote “Michael Barrymore” that he MUST be the star and “Kevin McCloud” MUST be the villain.  Some were so tricky I cheated because I’m lazy and stupid and just wrote “Stuff I couldn’t fit into the story” on a piece of paper and filmed that.

Here’s the tattered script (YES! There was a real script for this film!) with my useless notes scribbled incomprehensibly all over it.  


Shot the mother on Saturday.  
It was the most fun I’ve had for ages and ages.  
One snag - we got to our amazing basement location and no-one was home.  I had arranged for my friend to let us in but she forgot and her phone was dead so we sat outside her place waiting for about an hour and a half to no avail (pictured.)    
We had to improvise but we bloody did it…and even with our unexpected and frustrating wait we finished half an hour ahead of schedule.
Now to the edit.

THIS is where it all started.  I posted the above Facebook status asking for ideas that I would have to include in a 2 minute film.
On Saturday we shoot the beast.
