It’s the school holidays this week and I’ve had the pleasure of having my son Benjamin stay with me for a few days.
We’d had ideas for a short film concept a couple of weeks ago with the intention of making it this week.
All went to plan and we’re both very happy with the end result…
“BENJAMIN – naughty or nice”
Shot and edited in one day with a budget of £2.50 (for the t-shirt).
Benjamin is hoping for more film work and we certainly will be shooting more collaborations.
Anyone looking to cast a teenager for film/TV work, please contact me (below) and I will see if we can work together. Benjamin is a pleasure to work with. But then I would say that, I’m his Dad….
There’s an important by-election coming up in Stoke on Feb 23.
I’m a member of WellRedFilms, a group that produced this video about some of the issues in this election… I did the voiceover and video editing. Please take a look and share…
WellRedFilms is fundraising at the moment to make more videos like this…. please take a moment to look at this and consider donating.
In my second post of the Yuletide Season, I’ll share what’s happening in the present…..
I have joined up with a local bloke known as Tommy Teabag, changed my name to Dave Teabag, and we’ve done our first video release especially for Christmas.
Going under the name of The Yorkshire Teabaggers, we’ve recorded our take on the Christmas classic, Fairytale of New York, but given it a Yorkshire twist and renamed it Hairy Tale of New York(shire).
We’ve had a huge response on our Facebook Page and on YouTube as well… I share it with you now to spread the love from Yorkshire this Christmas.
All filmed locally at The Railway, Wadsley Bridge, Sheffield, just down the road from The Trafalgar Fisheries mentioned in the last post. Jean serves a fine pint, so get down there!
And finally, as a little Christmas gift to you, I’d like to share something I’ve recorded for family and friends, with a special Christmas wish for my children, Benjamin, Sophie and Joseph.
Merry Christmas to all! And to all, a good night!
love, Dave x
