Sunday, 6th October, 2013, 4pm. We turn up to the Albemarle Centre in Hull for the showing of our new film ‘The Field’ to cast, crew, family and friends and there is already a large crowd of people waiting. Half an hour later and the reception is full of people eagerly awaiting our film! Best not let them down then…
The day before, myself (Joe) and Callum were on BBC Radio Humberside promoting ‘The Field’ and local filmmaking in Hull. We arrived nice and early (Up early? A shocker I know!) for our 8:45 slot. Luckily we got longer on air than we should have done – a good ten minutes slot. We got some good feedback from it, with a number of people getting in touch offering locations for future films and events to promote our work.
We also released a short interview with some of the cast and crew, talking about the film’s story. Check it out below:
The Sunday arrived, the posters had been printed and mounted on the walls. We had about 100 – 120 guests. The actors all turned up with their families – the kids in the film were all looking especially dapper!
45 minutes later. There had been laughs. There had been jumps. There had been some freaking out. ‘The Field’ was a huge success! Everyone loved it! We had some great feedback from people telling us how great the picture quality was, the story, the sound effects, the music, the acting and the effects! Everyone stuck around afterwards, talking about what was in the field at Old Joe’s Farm. All-in-all it was a huge success!
A big thank you us for everyone that turned up to see it. Also a huge, huge, thanks to everyone that has been involved in making ‘The Field.’
Next stop – festivals. Let’s see if we can unleash the challenge at ‘The Field’ on to the rest of the world! Watch this space…
