Filming completed on 'Pretty Things'

It's been a busy weekend and that was due to the fact that I've been directing my latest short film 'Pretty Things' which has now wrapped and is poised to go into the editing suite. It was a great shoot and very smooth with a good bunch of people, many of whom I had not worked with before. 

'Pretty Things', which is a dark comedy about a lonely old man desperate for some attention from his relatives, was made possible thanks to  'Timothy Foxx', a very cool clothes design company so my thanks must go out to them especially. 

Production stills to follow shortly.

I found out about this from Chris Jone's blog and felt I just had to share it with you as this could be quite exciting. Lightworks, an early NLE system that I remember from the early 1990s but which was soon surpassed by the likes of Avid and then FCP, is back on the block it seems and this time it's free. With such films as 'The King's Speech', 'The Departed' and 'Shutter Island' edited on it this is far from a basic editing software program which makes the fact that it's freely available all the more attactive.

Unfortunately it's not available to Mac users but if you have a PC then why not try it by downloading your free version here.
