Video Diary Episode 16 - "Meetings & Opinions"
Here is my latest video blog which I shot whilst in London for a busy day of film meetings I had last week. I met an actress to play the female lead and a very talented CGI animator called, Henry Strong, who is re-designing the alien pods and spaceships which attack the cities.
I also had a meeting with a potential film sales agent.
Now, in the last few days, Creative England launched a new film fund for the West Midlands (UK) which is really great news for us and another glimmer of hope that the UK economy is finally starting to pick up. This is a significant fund and could finance up to 50% of the movie. However, one of their criteria is that we need a film sales agent/distributor attached. So, I set up this first meeting to talk about a potential collaboration.
However, for me the meeting didn’t go as expected - and we didn’t even get to the part where we discuss any future potential. After this I'm wondering if I should hold back on showing people what we've shot until the movie is complete. What do you think...?
