A Comedy of Edits – Dan’s New Film

 

This is the final cut of the new film that James Eaton, Paul Wade and I have been working on, it’s also our entry for this year’s 2 Days Laughter Competition. Those of you who’ve followed us for a while will already have heard of 2DL as we do it pretty much every year but for the uninitiated, 2DL is a film making competition which challenges people to produce a 5 minute comedy film with a total production time of no more than 48 hours.

Previous efforts on our part have included youth TV spoof [Box] Fresh, Edd The Duck biopic Ducking The Past and our take on the BBC’s Springwatch as well as several other films produced for 2DL’s horror based sister competition, 2 Day’s Later. We’ve managed to score a shortlisting on every film we’ve put in so far as well as one or two awards, fingers shall remain crossed that our new baby fairs equally well.

A Comedy of Edits is the story of William Shakespeare’s meeting with his play’s financial backers and stars Joshua Broadstone and Jack Gavin (of Devil’s Fork fame) as well as Ryan Brannon (one half of comedy duo, Cold Callers). They’re all good friends and it was lovely to get a chance to work with them all again. It was written and directed by James and myself and expertly shot by Paul (who also did the post production and very cool titles).

I shall keep you updated on how the competition goes, but for now I hope you enjoy the film.

58 Team Wins Big At 2 Days Later

Those of you who’ve followed us for a long while will know that we’re big fans of the 2 Days Later Horror competition and so it’s lovely to be able to report that a collective of good friends of ours have stormed this year’s competition, walking away with 8 nominations and 3 awards! The Rozie Owen helmed Zombie film “58” scored wins in the Best Actress and Best SFX categories before bagging the main event prize of Best Film, it’s a powerhouse of a performance that’s not been seen since…well the last time the guys entered a film.

The movie’s not on vimeo just yet but you can watch on the 2DL site by clicking HERE. I’ll throw up an embedded version here on the site as soon as it’s out.

Congratulations to Rozie, Ben, Paul, Al, Alan, Joe and everyone else who worked on the project.
