What’s been going on these past few months!?!?
Sorry for the mediatic silence. Rest assured we have not been in hibernation, work and efforts to get Babel’s Market made have been relentless.
Lets just say our work was transfered from the smells, colours and alleys of Porta Palazzo to our dark rooms and cluttered desks. We have applied to Piemonte Doc Film Fund, MEDIA (the European audio-visual fund) and Scottish Screen for development money as well as looking at various workshops that may help us develop our story. Of course young enthusiastic filmmakers like ourselves are often rowing upstream but that’s how we like it! It makes for an exciting life.
In the meantime Accidental Media and myself have been working on another doc much closer to home (in more ways than one): After only one month together Liam and Nita find out a baby is on the way. Their reaction to this news is completely different and they end up separating. Only the birth of a beautiful little girl brings them back together with unexpected consequences in their relationship and secrets from the past arising to threaten their new-found balance…
Like Babel’s Market this is a story of motherhood, belonging and tough decisions that life places before us. Most importantly it’s been a great opportunity to work more with Peter from Accidental; I must say, finding collaborators you just click with in this industry is not easy so I consider myself particularly lucky to be part of the Accidental Media family.
More news will follow… fingers crossed we’ll be telling you about all the money they’re giving us!
PS: Accidental Media is up for 3 (!) BAFTA new talent awards this week so keep your eyes peeled…
