Director of Indie Sci Fi Feature Film, COSMOS.
Grant. My word, thank you for such incredibly kind words! Truly. I hope we have the chance to cross paths someday, or at the very least can keep in touch via social media perhaps? Either way, thank you again and I wish you well with all your creative endeavors! :) x
Sorry for the slow response, Stefan. Really glad you enjoyed the article :) We share quite a bit of that kind of info on our social media, we also started a blog documenting the process as we were going through it (it's incomplete but we're working on it!). That can be found here: https://reeldealfilmschool.wordpress.com/cosmos/
(But to answer your questions here: the writing took about 3 months and we storyboarded the whole film ourselves - it proved incredibly valuable, as we were juggling multiple responsibilities when filming having that document to rely on was enormously important, knowing that we'd already come up with creative and compelling shot choices allowed us to move through the shots quicker and also grab extras when we knew we were covered). Please do connect with us on social media :) x
Funnily enough we started writing that article first and decided to focus on distribution instead as we felt others might find it more useful. We'd love to put that together though - we'll talk to NFS but even if they don't want to publish it we can always share it on our own blog for others to read. Really hope the current article proves useful, don't hesitate to reach out or connect with us on social media etc.
Thank you Michael - we made a note when we were looking for distribution that when we had a bit more knowledge on the process and had been through it ourselves that we'd share what we learnt with others. It would have helped us out at the time and we hope this proves useful in some capacity to anyone going through the process or planning for it. Thank you for your well wishes and thank you for the support x
Not a problem Anthony! We hope it proves useful :) Thank you for your continued support x
It's never too late Matthew - you know it. With everything we have available to us these days there's always an opportunity to tell your story. We are very lucky to have your support and we hope that the content we're sharing will be of some use to others out there. Thanks for the support (and we hope you enjoy the movie if you get a chance to catch it!) x
