Megamoon film premiere at Kendal Mountain Festival

It’s long been an ambition to have a film screened at Kendal Mountain Festival and this year that dream comes true. To say I’m happy is an understatement.  Its funny to think only two weeks ago I so very nearly pulled the film I had submitted. I didn’t think it was good enough, I was a little embarrassed and I wanted to concentrate my efforts on making it the best I could. It’s a personal story and involves a considerable amount of voice over. I’m no voice over artist and I’m far more comfortable behind rather than in front of the camera but it was obvious I had to tell the story.  In a last ditched effort I reworked the voice recording favouring a far less scripted and relaxed approach. It worked. At least it certainly improved the film and nudged it closer to something I’d been hoping to create.

There’s a much touted theory made popular in Malcolm Gladwell’s book, Outliers, which goes something along these lines… 10,000 hours of practice will make you an expert.  I’m far from an expert but I do have my first film in Kendal Mountain Festival and I’m pleased as punch with that.

      Thanks Susan! I was nervous at first and then they had to encourage me away from the podium during the questions and answers as I got so into it and they had run out of time ; )
