BAFTA Scotland and the Amazing Screening of One Day Removals


Yes, it's an old school dr who title for the amazing screening we attended at the BAFTA Scotland headquarter in Glasgow.

Funnily enough, BAFTA is the floor below Scottish Screen, so it took quite an effort to get director Mark Stirton (or me) in the building after the history we've had with them. But hopefully that's all changed now as one of the attendees at the screening was from Scottish Screen and has opened a dialogue with us. We'll look forward to letting you know the fruits of that dialogue in due course.

The screening itself was quite intimate, a viewing room with 10 people (counting us) with the movie being shown via a wee lcd projector attached to a macbook. But, it's one of the best screenings we've had, including the fully booked showings at festivals.

What was meant to be a short q&a, hosted by journalist Eddie Harrison, turned into an hour long matey chat with some lovely BAFTA jury members. We'd like to thank everyone for taking the time to come along and ask some great questions. So fingers all crossed for the feature film nominations in October.

Also, we got to see some police boxes as there are heaps in Glasgow. This one's now a tiny gallery.

Good-oh. I also see 'Creative Cultures Scotland' (as Scottish arts council now known?!) is thinking about offering money for digital projects... going to cash in on that one, definitely.

Now, just go and get Mark to put salt around all his windowsills so no evil spirits cast bad luck spells on him!! ;-)

Saw your movie. Loved it. Fave scene - screwdriver to the skull and the argument that followed.

Good call. One of my favorites. But the scene that still gets me is when the drunk first gets hit by the truck and then the scene where Michael gets dragged!

We've been a busy bunch of bunnies. Strange days my friend, strange days.

Busy, eh? Pray tell, with what new and exciting project? Details would be cool.

BTW...don't recall if I told you this, I am cutting Darkness Aftermath down a bit to a tighter story based on your (and other) advise. When its done, I'll send you a copy.

Mike - please bring it (D:A) round for a beer & pizza night when you get it.

One of the main things I'm doing, per Michael's suggestions, is tightening the edits (some by only a few frames) and making some of the 'walking' scenes tighter. Looking for a Late Oct. release.

Hi Allen, sounds good. I think it would help the story to strip some of the wandering around shots. Sound is really the major issue.

My bits could be enhanced by being seen off camera by an onlooker in a bedsheet. There's mystery for you:)

Bed sheets...nice...
