After a year of waiting and working, the CFSI film is finally happening. The budget is miniscule, and they want more than I set out to give them, but what the hell? It’s 10 years since my Institute days, and this is going to be my first feature film. We are used to guerilla film-making, low or no-budgets and I’ve been clever enough to write a “do-able” script, and not my usual mad-cap over-ambitious ventures.
The trouble is I’m not feeling elated, or anything. So many years of waiting has dulled my nerves. And I’ve still to realize that yes, I am making the film.
