Director of Indie Sci Fi Feature Film, COSMOS.
Tolu, thank you so much my friend - thank you for being there for the premiere and making it so special for us and thank you for your continued support and positivity. We genuinely want to try and pull down the walls between filmmakers and the processes standing between them making their films - hopefully this article does that to some degree. Everyone's movies and journeys are different but if there's just a single thing in here that someone finds useful then it's served its purpose. Thank you again and keep us updated with your own projects x
Some incredibly wise words there Jason - it's often hard to take that look inside and confront some of the things that really hold us back. We're all guilty of putting up our own barriers, it can make it easier to accept why we're not doing what we know we really should be. Anyway, thank you for your wonderful comment and sorry it's taken so long to get back, only just seen some of these comments here. Please do reach out to us on social media, it'd be awesome to continue the convo, but either way best of luck with all your own creative projects x
Hi Michael - sorry for not getting back to you sooner, have only just seen some of these new comments. First of all you can absolutely talk about it in your podcast, if you haven't already - we'd appreciate the coverage!
Secondly, thanks for such a positive comment - wonderful to feel that kind of support. It's all a learning process isn't it and you have to trust that whatever you did before seemed like the best route at the time. Each new project helps us grow - we've made Cosmos, it's taught us such a lot about the process and ourselves, we wouldn't want to do it like that again but we wouldn't trade that experience for anything.
Really hope you enjoy the movie if you get a chance to catch it and best of luck with your next project! Please do reach out to us on social media, we're keen to connect with likeminded folk! All the best x
Well Benja, we respect the crap out of you my friend. Thank you for reading and being such a positive voice - please connect with us on social media, let's keep the convo flowing :) Best of luck with all your filmmaking endeavors! x
Hey Lee - sorry for not getting back to you on this sooner, only just seen your comment. Thanks for being so supportive. Plans before Covid were to move to LA and begin pitching to studios, we've made some good contacts over there through Cosmos - the good news is that to a degree that's still happening via video calls but we're now also keeping our eye on filming regulations and restrictions and developing something we may end up producing with independent financing that would be achievable in a Covid world, perhaps while we're waiting for the drawn out Hollywood development process.
I've mentioned to a couple of people on here that it'd be great to connect/continue talking on social media; we're trying to build a community of likeminded filmmakers so it'd be awesome to see you over there sometime. No pressure though; thanks for your comment and best of luck with your short! Let us know when it's out :) x
Hey Christopher, thanks for such an awesome comment - really pleased you enjoyed the article. Yeah, when we say we had no budget people immediately jump on the fact that we spent money; money was of course spent, although a very small amount spread over 6 years, but there's a difference between spending your own money on something and having a budget for it. Equally by industry definition no budget is anything under $50k... rather absurdly! Haha
Thanks again. We'd love to connect with you on social media, hoping to build a network of likeminded creatives, hopefully we'll see you over there sometime.
