Ferried – The Production Diaries (7)

Less than three weeks away!

It’s not long until the shoot. This film is becoming like a giant snowball, gaining momentum the closer we get to the shoot date.

There’s a lot for me to be getting on with so I’m afraid this will be a brief post.

The Kickstarter launched

We launched our Kickstarter campaign on Thursday. We had an amazing first day. And on the morning of day 2 (today) we have just crossed the £1,000 mark with 19 backers.

The page at £1,000 pledged

I cannot thank all of our backers enough for their support. It means a lot to us and shows that people value our work. (That or they like us enough to pay for something they think is valueless!) Either way it’s nice for us. Thank you!

For those that haven’t been to our campaign, please check it out by clicking here.

We know that not everyone can support financially. If you can’t then please tell your friends and family about the campaign. We need all the help we can get.

There is a lot of interest in the preview screening. I’m really looking forward to that as there are going to be some people I haven’t seen in a long time there. Book your place at the Kickstarter page.

We had an excellent script meeting

Films are constantly evolving. Whether it’s because of feedback from actors, production limitations (my main job is to avoid those changes) or just the weather on the day films mutate. Even after everything has been shot films can morph in the editing process. But the place to start is with an excellent script.


Mark, Drew and I had a very productive script meeting yesterday. We tweaked and moved things around to make it even better. With Drew’s ear and Mark’s vision it’s become an even stronger script. I can’t wait to see it played out by the actors.

Drew, Mark and me. Excellent selfie-stick technique if I say so my self.

Location is confirmed

We have confirmed the location for Michael’s house. We are kindly being allowed to use a lovely though isolated cottage in Norfolk. It’s exactly how I imagine Michael’s house.

Now we need to find a local pub and supermarket that will let us film. Time for a charm offensive.

That’s all from me at the moment.

Please do look at our Kickstarter page and share it around. Have a great weekend.
