We speak to the funny guys over at Dice Productions, Ian and Louis about films, sleep-overs in pubs (?!) and cataloging bacon sandwiches in Birmingham (what the crap??)
They’re the guys behind the multi-award winning ‘Man in a Cat’ and ‘Gregory is a Dancer’ which we screened at the last Bar Shorts.
Essentially these guys are a little crazy, a big funny and most talented. Read their interview here!
Here’s a poster for next weeks Manchester Bar Shorts….

Our Random Acts film, Gregory Is A Dancer, aired last night on Channel 4. It features the life and death story of a compulsive dancer who is born into poverty, sucked up by the fame machine and spat out the other end.

So so so so close to the big BAFTA gong - part 3.
I’ve kept this to myself for the last month but The Ringer has been on the long list for the Best Short Film BAFTA. I didn’t want to say anything incase I jinxed it. This meant that out of all of the hundreds of films The Ringer was in the last 10 to be considered for the final 5 nominations. Which was something else.
The Ringer may not be one of the five nominations but it doesn’t matter. Our film is full of love and heart and I’m so proud of the cast and crew of The Ringer. I can’t thank everyone involved enough for making it happen for me. Autour De Minuit, The Bureau, Nicolas Schmerkin, Valentina Brazzini, Andy Humphreys, Oliver Davis, Simon Tindall, Lin Cordoray, Justine Wright and all of my friends. The other BAFTA films that made it through are beyond awesome and you’re in for a treat watching them. Good luck to them all.
Its ten years since I was last nominated for a BAFTA with Dad’s Dead. I always meet people who say, hey you won the BAFTA for Dad’s Dead. I always smile and say nothing. Magical happens with time.
Saying that for this years nominations I was surprised to see that in Best British Short Film none of the great festival films which were clearly contenders in the line up. Maybe they decided to go for totally fresh faces. So I’d like to herby present my own BAFTA, the CSFTAs in joint first - of course.
Johah - Kibwe Tavares and Ivana McKinnon
Twinkle Twinkle - Deborah Haywood

In The Air Is Christopher Gray - Felix Massie (how did this get left off the BAFTAs???)
First prize is a pint of the filmmaker’s choice - of course.
