Really pleased with the feedback from the taster clip and looking forward to more press interviews and finding a place  on TV for Mr. Somebody?

"The NFTS Film Clinic selected five films from 100 applicants. Lara Agnew, NFTS Film Clinic founder and director said the experience of working with the directors had been inspiring: “When the film makers applied to us some of them had been filming for many years, often working in isolation in their bedrooms on their personal computers trying to craft many hours of footage into a narrative. “Working with such dedicated, unpaid, under-resourced film-makers who are driven by a passion to tell stories has been inspiring. I believe this kind of filmmaking will be a source of great work in the future. It is exciting that the accessibility of film technology and the internet are encouraging new methods of filmmaking and distribution.” "
