You’ll notice that many of the clips for my longer films on this site are for the most part either the opening 4/5 minutes of the film or an extract rather than ‘proper’ trailers. There’s a very good reason for this – it’s simple: Time management – and let’s face it if you don’t like the first 5 minutes then you won’t like what follows next so why lie to you in a glossy trailer!? As time goes on I hope to be able to offer all my long-form films via VoD options and as viewing packages – once I get my head around Distrify and other sources. If however you want to see the films NOW please contact me directly via the contact page on this site and we can arrange something directly, either via an archive link or via limited edition DvD’s. There are however many free items already on my site in the fragments, shorts and pilot sections under each heading and I’ll be posting more regularly via this blog.
As for my current creative activities, I’m working on among other things the first stages of writing for The Scotiastan Blog – a work of fiction/fact that’s based on more then 10 years of cerebral downloads beginning with a murder 4 weeks before 9/11 happened in a country at the end of Europe. I’m developing the step-out-line for a feature with the working title of The Easterhouse Surf Trip (Glasgow’s first surf movie – kind of) I’ll also be shooting pilot material for Sniper 2(01)4 back in Glasgow and here in Copenhagen and am now also seeking out creative conversation with the film and art production communities here!
In terms of my current big project in progress Minefield – I’ll be posting more about that separately in due course – but will just say that at the moment due to creative and personality differences, not to mention Producer issues and changes, the film is now under-going a massive and radical rethink on my part.
As for other stuff that makes things worthwhile the temperature is finally lifting above zero here in Copenhagen, Spring wind and waves are on the way apparently for surfing – and I finally got my bike back from the repair shop in Nørrebro (after a late night collision with a lamp-post outside STV before I left Glasgow over a month ago!) So I now have Copenhagen transport to go meet people wherever and whoever you are!
