NEW MEMBER OF THE TEAM
I am delighted to be able to announce the news that Mark Talbot-Butler has joined the Love Like Hers team as Editor. This is an incredible steal for this film as Mark has had many years working in the industry and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience. I truly believe that Marks involvement as Editor will lift my film into a whole new league.
Mark was editor on the incredibly successful UK film ‘Exam’ which is still available on DVD and has received incredible reviews. You can hear Mark talking about making the film on the special commentary feature on the DVD. Mark was also editor on BBC show Top Gear.
It’s a real boost in credibility for Love Like Hers. Mark loves the screenplay and can’t wait to get in on the edit. I must say a huge thank you to Eddie Hamilton (editor of Kick Ass and the new X-Men) for recommending him for the film. Eddie Hamilton too loved the screenplay which was a huge confidence boost.
WE DID IT, WE CROWD FUNDED £10K FOR LOVE LIKE HERS
I’m still having to pinch myself. Only a few weeks ago did we receive an incredible £5,000 contribution to the film. I’m very excited to reveal that we have received another TWO incredible contributions for Love Like Hers.
The first came last night from a new viewer to my weekly live filmmaker’s show. She came across my blog by accident after Googling something else. She was so drawn in by my journey that she decided to watch the live show. Seeing what we’re trying to achieve and witnessing the ambitions of my journey she decided to donate £1,000 to the project. I’m hoping she’ll agree to being mentioned on the blog. All I can say right now is that she is based on the Isle of Man and likes Tasmin Archer’s hit single Sleeping Satellite.
I’d barely had time for that news to sink in when I got some more great news this morning. One of my clients (for my video production business) saw my updates on Twitter and decided to contribute the remaining £436 needed to reach our £10k goal.
All this and we still have over a month before the camera rolls!
I’ve learnt so much through the crowd funding experience and hope to share some more detailed thoughts on the blog in the very near future.
Of course, you can still contribute if you haven’t already and want to help out on the film. Check out the fun and creative incentives on our dedicated fund raising page here http://www.lovelikehers.com/funds
In the meantime, thank you so very much to EVERYONE who has contributed to this film. I promise to deliver an incredible short film!
More updates to come. Thanks for stopping by.
