Re: BIAFF 2014

I hope Patrick Duffy knows his film is being shown? As he was saying in his post that it wasn't being shown!

Re: BIAFF 2014

Really enjoying all these reviews. Certainly makes me feel better that all you wonderful people are watching it and for the most part enjoying it. :) Ned... i love your take on the film, but that was not our intention when we set out to make the film... atleast not from my part as the Director, i ca...

Re: BIAFF 2014

Hey Howard, i just watched LONELY PEOPLE too, and I also think a 1 Star is too harsh. It does show some basic skills in film making. I actually found it quite creepy in places! The sequence where the spirit takes the flowers was unexpected and eerie, also the final frame of the film shows the girl s...

Re: BIAFF 2014

Cheers guys. Really enjoying these mixed reviews. :) If we had Karen screaming from the start, i think the cat and mouse romance theme would not have worked. We couldn't get these two to fall for each other if she had started out from the moment she wakes up being scared out of her wits. We had to t...

Re: BIAFF 2014

No worries Col... the shaky cam experience isn't for everyone. As for being implausible, if you'd stuck with the film to the end you may have thought differently. The film is a rom-com, with a certain twist. :) Thanks for trying though.

Re: BIAFF 2014

I agree to a certain extent Ned... but this is a competition. There are prizes, trophies and the best films are celebrated. Take that aspect away from BIAFF and i'd happily shut up. But as long as there is a competition element to the festival (and long may it continue) you will always get upset fil...

Re: BIAFF 2014

As someone who was both a Judge at BIAFF and an entrant, i can honestly say there is no bias towards anyone during the judging weekend. No one talks about the films during the breaks, or what they gave them award wise. I started to get paranoid as i had hoped someone might come up to me and say that...

Re: BIAFF 2014

I am REALLY chuffed that my feature film 'Addict' is being screened at BIAFF, especially considering it's subject matter. Looking forward to watching it on the big ('ish) screen. :)

Re: BIAFF 2014

Firstly... thanks for taking the time to watch the film. Really appreciate it. I also appreciate everyone's honesty. I think it just proves that Art is subjective, another man's medicine is another man's poison. Bedford it is! :)

Re: BIAFF 2014

I have to be honest... i'm still scratching my head over the 4 Stars for Karen's Room . The only negative comment was to do with a short dialogue exchange where the audio is quite low. It's actually meant to be that way, to help emphasise what happens next in the scene. No one else has had an issue ...

Ha ha! I do try to sneak into all my films these days. See if you can spot me in 'Karen's Room'!

Re: BIAFF 2014

I've just been told by my colleague that a film I Produced (SoulMatrix) has got a Diamond award, along with Best Comedy and Best Editing awards. So really chuffed about that! Not technically my film, so i don't count it in my mission to get a Diamond award... but i'm chuffed to bits that it's done s...

Re: BIAFF 2014

My pride has been dented this year if i'm honest. I thought i put in a really strong film. My short Karen's Room won the Teign Cup last year, as well as winning Best Non-Professional Film at NOFI 2013 in LA in December. I thought i was oncourse for a 5 star or maybe even my first Diamond (wishful th...

Re: BIAFF 2014

My results came in this morning... I had 2 films entered, one result i was very pleased with, the other not quite so.

Having been a judge at the event, i have been scratching my head a little over the result, but i'm not going to moan! ;-) I'm on the other side of the fence this year! LOL
