Oh Frabjous Day!

The Time:- Three And A Half Or So Years Ago
The Place:- Trickshot Towers

Me:- I've got that redundancy coming up at some point soon. Nice chunk of cash there.
My mate Rich:- Yeah, we're selling the flat, should make a massive profit on it so we'll have some cash left over.*
Me & My Mate Rich:- Let's go and make a feature film called Incidental Weekend!**

And off to Bulgaria we went...

It is three and half or so years later. Three years almost to the day since filming commenced. Two and three quarter years since filming finished. Collectively, three house moves, two new jobs and two births*** later.

And it's finished. Finally. Actually done.

Oh sure, there's still a little bit of tweaking to be done. A couple of voiceovers to replace, levels to double check and end credits to build but that's minor work. It's there. Start to finish there. And a marvellous sight to behold it is, too. Admittedly, yes, I would say that as I want everyone to buy it once the DVDs are ready but still...

So what next?

Well, a screening at a Central London cinema (date still to be confirmed), copies available on DVD through Trickshot Films and then who knows? The sky's the limit.

But for now, well, time for a celebratory pint, I reckon.



* Obviously quite some time ago...


** OK, I've paraphrased that slightly and it took us bloody ages to name the thing but you get the idea.


*** Don't panic, Claudia and Rebecca are both Rich's, I haven't been keeping dark and mysterious secrets from you.

Oh, but Sir Nick...I am sure you are the keeper of dark and mysterious secrets...

I'm positive of it.

And at our house...we refer to him as THE Batman...do you do that? I'm not sure why, but the kids made it perfectly clear to me...if I speak of him...it must be THE Batman...

And Congratulations on being done! Good job! Many people start a book, movie, project and it never comes to fruition...I'm proud of you!
:)

J-Diggs - Cheers, me dear! I hoisted a few glasses myself last night...

Sweet Cheeks - Well, yes, my secrets are dark and mysterious, true... I tend to just call him Bruce, I feel we're on first name terms after all these years. Cheers, me dear!

kapgaf - Also nice jabberwocking... Cheers! It's been the longest labour ever.

Pearl - I was actually grinning like a fiend yesterday (especially as it was combined with other really good news). Cheers, Pearly!
