‘The Field’… The End?

It’s been 10 months. We’ve battled snow and sleet. Pushed on through wind and rain. Conquered heat-waves and glaring sunlight. No, we haven’t been doing some mad trek across the globe – this is just the mix of weather we have faced in England this last year as we’ve been making out newest film ‘The Field’.

We are now happy to say that, after all that time and all of the hard work that has been involved, ‘The Field’ is finally complete. Yes, in the last few days we fixed any discrepancies we had in the visuals and the sounds. We wrote our opening and end credits and we created our Berry Productions Logo to top and tail the film. Complete. Bliss.

Except of course for rendering. Anyone that has ever made a film in the digital world will understand what I mean by the term rendering. Anyone that doesn’t… it’s a bit like waiting for a bath to run. You really want this bath, in fact you can’t do anything until you have a bath. And as it turns out this bath is huge and takes a really long time to fill!

Rendering aside, we’re good to go! Go with what? Well first things first we have a Première of the film this Sunday 6th October in our hometown of Hull, East Yorkshire, UK. If you’re in or around Hull on that date, feel free to come along. Click on this lovely little link to take you to our Facebook event for more info. If you’re reading this past that date, we’ll be having another showing in Hull so please keep a check with us on Facebook or Twitter!

Now the hard work begins. Promoting our film is the next step and it’s a HUGE one. We’re going to hit all the major festivals and distributors. Anything to help get ‘The Field’ seen and hopefully put us a step closer to some funding for a feature film! Any help that anyone can offer in this department will be much appreciated!

And of course, please keep watching and sharing out Teaser Trailer on YouTube, help us get to 1000 views! There will be some interviews and clips from the film coming very soon so keep checking back with us!


Greetings from the Great Berry in the sky!

When I was a child I used to pretend that the Berry was a giant creator above the clouds. He was the ever watching guardian of the world. And he was accompanied by a giant spoon that would rotate around the clouds every hour to tell you the time, and an angry fat guy in a nappy who controlled the weather. Yeah… I was pretty messed up as a child!– Joseph Monahan, Berry Productions

True story. Now of course the Berry doesn’t sit in the sky, more like on the waves of the internet as we surf through the ever expanding void. Now that void has expanded even more as we at Berry Productions have a new website! Hooray! Please stroll through our pages and find out about some of the cool stuff we’ve done and the even cooler stuff we’re doing! So cool you’ll need to wrap up nice and warm! We’ve made our website here through WordPress so we can make blogs and ramble about things that may or may not be important!

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you for stopping by! As independent filmmakers, we struggle to get our voices heard, or our films watched, through the sea of other indie filmmakers and that gigantic, dangerous ocean that is Hollywood! So that you’ve taken the time to visit our little page means loads to us!

We love feedback! Not that annoying feedback sound from speakers that sometimes intrudes our ears, but feedback from you – film lovers or fellow filmmakers! Please, leave us a comment on anything. Let us know if you like something or if you don’t – but please be constructive! Let us know why you like or don’t like it so we can improve next time!

As I write this, we are working on our newest short film, ‘The Field’. In fact we’re in post-production stages, so not far from finishing! We’re really excited about it and will be posting loads of stuff about it as we hope to get you all excited about it as well!

Please drop us a ‘hello’ on Twitter @berryproduction or on Facebook and we’ll send you a ‘hello’ right back!

Live long, prosper, and look up every now and then… you might just see that giant Berry… or a fat guy in a nappy! x
