Merry Christmas


Yes, it's time for this year's Christmas film - now a slight tradition of mine. I feel making a film is better than sending a card and more fun too.

This year, take away some of the musical befuddlement around the festive season with my handy guide to one verse of Fairytale of New York.

I'm sure you will find it both useful and a comfort - that's right, you're not going deaf, he really is mumbling that much. Now you can finally join in with the whole feel-good Christmassy vibe of the song.

You may need to watch it twice. And for extra help I added subtitles!

(and for all you writers out there, let's remember who did the real work - the song is written by Jeremy Finer and Shane MacGowan)

Puttnam on Scriptwriters

Hey writers - this will pep you up! I recently interviewed Lord Puttnam, producer of Chariots of Fire, The Mission, Killing Fields and Memphis Belle. I asked him his view of scriptwriters and what he wanted from them.

Google Street View animation

As a lot of regular readers will know I am gearing up for a feature shoot set in the world of Google Earth style apps. So this caught my eye - and nicely done it is too.

Costs you nothing - raises money for a film

If you haven't got your Christmas presents yet and are thinking of getting them from Amazon then you could help me out.

When you go to Amazon via the link above then I get a small percentage from the profit of whatever you buy. It costs you nothing. I've set up a new account so that all these small percentages go to one place - and maybe can help top up the budget for a new short film.

It may work, it may not. But it costs nothing to try.

If you don't use the link above then the extra profits just go into the Amazon coffers anyway and I think they have enough cash already!

Your film friend, Tim
