edited July 2022 in Practical Filmmaking

It’s finally done. Your blood, sweat and virtually all of the hours you could have spent watching Netflix or playing with your newborn child has gone into creating a short film. It is, in fact, the best film you’ve ever made. It might even be the best film anyone’s ever made.

There’s only one problem. No-one knows it exists. Read more >>

    Wow, Simon, you totally plagiarized KristieT! ;-) 

    For the record, I can speak for a measly two viewers who would love to see a second "Arms Race" series.

    To be fair, the blog post itself is properly credited to being written by Kirstie. :D She's currently away in San Francisco racing Segways, though, so it's left to me to keep the ball rolling. :P

    We'd love to do more Arms Race. The main hold-up on new IAT content is that in the last year there have been three new IAT babies. Add on my son from a couple of years previously and we've all been somewhat distracted.

    THAT SAID - Nigel has just set up a new studio in his garden (it's basically an enormous shed), so we're slowly pulling together a new setup that should let us do all kinds of things. Whether we'll return to the Arms Race universe or try some other things we've yet to decide. Probably a bit of both.

    It has been said that all the truly great creations in the world are British and started in a garden shed :)

    Is it really @Aladdin4d? I hadn't heard that one!

    Does that mean that if I get myself a shed I'll be more likely to create something awesome? (might be difficult because I live in a flat but still!)

    When I clicked your read more button, it did not work correctly. I have a habit of gathering more information about marketing, digital marketing, and other topics and visit many sites like Mailpro because some websites can help expand my knowledge. I saw your article, but the unfortunate thing is that it does not work correctly.

    @robanhood Simon no longer works with FXhome, and the FXhome website has had multiple comprehensive revamps since 2015. I'll tag in web guru @philipwesson (Phil, link in initial post is broken), but re-linking a 7 year old article is probably far down Phil's list of things to tweak. @Phil
