  1. Cattle Raid 20.4.14

    Easter Sunday. Sun is shining and I took the day off and went down to the beach. I needed it! Hard to sleep or think about anything else at the moment but the film.

    Casting is all but finished. I found the last piece of the jigsaw, the third brother and he has accepted the role.

All seem very keen and excited about the project ...

    Editor Luke, Music by Will, and myself have been up all night to get the promo into shape for putting on line today at lunch time. I dont know if we will make this self-imposed deadline. The web site is ready, the FB fan page is ready, ...

    I have just seen this clip posted by Devin and have to say it comes at a very useful moment for me. I am mired in preparing to shoot my first micro budget feature. Every day is filled with challenges on every level, script, money, cast, crew, loving the story, hating the story. The key thing for me is to keep doing it. To keep working. to keep trying to produce better work and meet one day my own expectations.
