Welcome to the first proper post of our production journal. This is the place where we will be writing detailed updates about the film’s progress and what we’re doing behind the scenes. We’re hoping that, as well as being an interesting account of the film’s production, it will also be a place where we can share information with other independent filmmakers about what to do, and what not to do, when making a micro-budget feature film.

Right now we’re in the very early stages of getting the film off the ground. What that means practically is that we’re getting the budget into shape, working on the schedule, and thinking about what and who we need in order to pull this thing off. We’ve also been working on a production pack which we can give to investors, and trying to market the film through the internet. It might seem like it’s a little early to market it, but we believe it’s a good time to be getting the word out there, as it means that people can follow the film right through the production process – and hopefully once the film’s done, all of you people following our progress will be interested in seeing the thing!

The other big thing that we’ve been working on is putting the team together. As some of you might know, we put out a call for cinematographers and editors. We had an overwhelming response, not only in terms of numbers, but also in terms of quality. Choosing people for these positions proved to be a long and hard decision, but we feel confident that we made the right choices in the end: Bartlomiej Sienkiewicz and Murat Kebir respectively. We also found someone to handle location sound and audio post production: Jason Creasey. Again, we’re very pleased with our decision. You can find biographies of all of our team, and links to relevant websites, over at
