It's hectic at Recoil Films at the moment as we're putting the finishing touches to the parts of 'The Addicted' that we're taking to Cannes. We've also booked the screening in Soho for the distributors to come and see it in it's entirety... exciting stuff. I just wish we were closer to finishing... it's full-on at the moment working on the foley, the music and the final bits of the grade.
At the end of next week, we're off to Cannes to present the film to the various distributors who have asked to see it, and hopefully to meet some other distributors from around the World. We're really confident that we've got an amazing film here... letting this one slip is going to be huge error. Unlike previous years where we've taken DVDs as screeners, this year we've made the decision to go with USB sticks. We've got 3 trailers, 3 long scenes from the film and an electronic press kit all on one little credit card sized USB stick... much more Cannes friendly. No excuses for not taking one. We've also got some full sized cinema posters, flyers, promo stuff galore... we're not going unprepared!
Anyone who would like to see the movie in Cannes and talk to us, we're there from the 21st until the 27th May. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a meeting. Don't be shy either... we're up for meeting anyone involved in any area of the business. We're looking to shoot our next feature at the end of the year, so financiers, producers, whatever.... get in touch.
While i'm here, our co-producer, casting director and lead actress, Jenny Gayner has been nominated for 'Best West End Understudy'... so please show her some support and go here to vote:
