I just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone who has been so supportive to me over the last few days. I intend to get the site back up and running properly tomorrow. To say thank you properly I’d like to make you an offer.
I would like to start a weekly ‘Short Film of the Week’ feature. If you are a film-maker or a writer, with stuff on Youtube, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Veoh, or similar, then it would be wonderful if you got in touch. It could be a documentary, an animation, a comedy, a tragedy, a romance film, a reality TV show (it’d be interesting to see if anyone has done this well online!), a stand up comedy set, a music video, a vlog… or anything really, so long as it’s well crafted. No pornography though!
Every Monday, the film I consider to be the best submission will be embedded here with a short editorial from me. Tellybrain.com gets around 250 hits a day (on days with new content), and as the site is pretty new I expect this number to rise as exposure increases.
The best way to get in touch is Twitter. Link me to your film and tell me a little about it: genre, length, when you made it, and what your role was. My twitter handle is @Tellybrain.
In the meantime here are a few films that I have made in the past. This is shameless self promotion, I know, but some are actually quite enjoyable… others of dubious quality (with little bits of gold too!), but all were made with love and limited experience/equipment. I wrote all of them, with the exception of Reality Check which I co-wrote and created.
2012 – As Life Goes By (The Story of the humble park bench. Special thanks to the BBC Production Trainee Scheme for this one!)
2010 – I am The Doctor (An obsessive fan wakes up and thinks he is Doctor Who)
2009 - Radio Stars (Radio Play based on Steven Moffat’s Press Gang)
2009 – Spudz (A sketch show starring potatoes)
2009 – Lurking in Life’s Shadow (A short film/poem about Death)
2008 – Reality Check (Three short films about differing perceptions of reality – Also written by David Pallant and Iain Williamson)
2007 – Doss House (Sitcom set in a student house… my first piece of writing, so be gentle!)
Thank you very much for reading/watching. Feel free to leave a comment, and do come back tomorrow when hopefully I’ll have a proper blog for you!
