Re: BIAFF 2018 RESULTS

Morning all, good to see the number of 5 Stars is up. :) I also got a 5 Star this year with my short film 'Smile' and will be screened on the Sunday. I was chuffed to bits with the Judges comments, some of the best i've had!

Val Ellis

Just heard the news about Val Ellis. Very sad to hear that she has passed. I have fond memories of her from when i went to the IAC festivals in London back in the late 80's, and early 90's. She would always stop and chat with me as a young whipper snapper. Full of encouragement. Over the last couple...

Re: THE BIAFF FESTIVAL 2017

But the number of five stars isn't limited, is it? You comment that there were "only" thirteen five stars (plus the 8 diamonds) in 2017. In the previous year there were only eight. There were also only 49 four star awards. The largest group of films for both years (and for as long as I ca...

Re: THE BIAFF FESTIVAL 2017

Sometimes that is the case, as it was here. Sometimes, the film that wins takes everyone's heart. We're not all built the same fortunately. :-) If we were... then we'd all love Star Wars obviously. ;-)

Re: THE BIAFF FESTIVAL 2017

Don't hold back Tim! ;-) I LOVED 'I Am'. I loved everything that you have questioned about it. The story of a mirror which has fallen for the woman that stares into it every day. The sadness that is reflected in her life is also reflected in the mirror itself... it so wants to be with her. The lead'...

Re: Crowd Funding - HELP

Sadly, we didn't quite make our target of £20k via Kickstarter... although we did reach an admirable £16K! But alas, with Kickstarter, if you don't reach your target, you get ZERO money, and no one is charged. With that in mind, we are changing tactic and changing platform. So we're using IndieGoGo ...

Re: Crowd Funding - HELP

Hi Ned, Without going in to too much detail on the Budget. The rough breakdown is; Crew - 8% (majority of the crew are working for free) Cast - 28% (Equity Rates. This is quite high because we have a Hollywood actor involved) Location - 10% Accommodation for Cast & Crew - 10% Camera Equipment, L...
