Film Dash

Thursday’s news – getting close now!

Posted on: October 9, 2008

All the news that’s fit to post:

  • Another team has entered the fray!  Trai This have become the 5th team to register.  I know of a couple of other teams looking to get involved soon too.
  • Film Dash has got more people talking – Nicky Getgood at Digbeth is Good gave Film Dash a mention, as did Pete Ashton on the Custard Factory blogPodnosh gave a little tweet too.
  • Meanwhile, the search for some sort of trophy continues.

I’ve had a couple of questions come in too.  Here are the answers:

  1. The ‘5 team members’ restriction relates to behind-the-camera folk only.  You’re cast can be as big as you like so if you’re planning an epic then go for it.  Just remember that ‘talent’ can slow you down.
  2. I can only guarantee that the winning film will be screened at the Odeon on Sunday 26 October.  If there’s enough demand (and films) then I’d love to screen them all somewhere.  Unfortunately I have neither the budget nor the time to sort anything like that at the moment.  I’m open to offers though…

Over the next few days I’ll be finalising arrangements for the launch on Friday 17th.  I’m also going to be passing on a little info about Michael Balcon, his work and why Film Dash fits in so well with a celebration of his legacy.
