What You Can Expect, and When You Can Expect It!

As you can imagine, we're busy beavering away getting things ready for our release in the UK and Ireland in December, and in celebration we have a host of things planned for the coming weeks. So I thought it might be a good idea to just quickly note down what you can expect, and when you can expect it!

w/c Nov 5th
From Education to the Abyss: Next week we'll be kicking off our video campaign, 'From Education to the Abyss'. The idea behind the campaign is to open a discussion about what happens during that awkward first year after you've finished University: we're sure that the characters in LIFE JUST IS aren't the only ones who have had life-changing (and life-challenging) experiences during that time. Launching on our YouTube Channel, we'll be inviting video responses to spark off the discussion. So, whether you have a funny story, a heartbreaking anecdote, or a terrifying tale, get ready to tell us about it! We want to hear all about your horrendous jobs, your disastrous love affairs, and your hilarious adventures… but most importantly of all, we just want to hear YOUR voice and find out what happened to you when you entered the gaping abyss of 'real' life!

w/c Nov 12th
The Trailer: The moment many of you have been waiting for – the official launch of the LIFE JUST IS trailer!

w/c Nov 19th:
The Stills of Life Just Is…In Motion: As we approach our release, we look back to the shoot with a unique behind-the-scenes documentary made from the stills taken on set by photographer David Lau. I'm particularly pleased with the way this has come out and wish we'd have had it in time for the DVD… be sure not to miss it!
Facebook Profile Picture campaign: A double-whammy this week! As well as releasing the video, we'll also be asking you to help us spread the word by changing your Facebook profile picture to an image with all the details of our release. As a small, independent production, we really need people like YOU to help us make our film a success.

w/c Nov 26th:
Andrew Hawley Improv: During the shoot it became apparent that some dialogue I'd written for the character of Nick (played by Andrew Hawley) wasn't long enough for what I needed from the scene. So I asked Andrew to improvise. Which he did, to hilarious effect. Unfortunately for me, the first few takes were ruined by our lead actors Nathaniel Martello-White and Will De Meo being so amused that they couldn't keep a straight face. Luckily for you, we're releasing this footage as a special bonus. Another one not to be missed!

w/c Dec 3rd:
Fiona Ryan Set Tour: Another look back to the shoot, this video features a short tour of the set, in which lead actress Fiona Ryan takes us around the film's main location and introduces us to the cast and crew in her own, inimitable style.

So, there you have it – what you can expect, and roughly when you can expect it! With any luck there will be one or two further surprises along the way, but hopefully this is enough to get you excited for now!

More soon.
