Chris Shepherd's Directors Notes

Film Club's Chris Shepherd has given a comprehensive interview to online magazine Directors Notes about his new short film, The Ringer.

With Chris' film currently doing the rounds at International festivals - and with his first festival win at the Courtivore Film Festival only last week - Directors Notes investigated both the film-making process and Chris' insightful approach to film-making in general.

The article is very complimentary about Chris and The Ringer, even calling the film a 'contender for inclusion' for the 'classic' short film category. The magazine continues by describing the film as 'innovative, funny and distinctly British'.

It's always a pleasure to gain greater insight into any great film, and this article is definitely no exception.

What do you think: Has The Ringer persuaded Tom Cruise to sign up to Chris' next project?

Film Club's Daniela Sherer's double success

Film Club's Daniela Sherer has won best animated film in her category at this years Stuttgart Festival of Animated film. The short, 'Shirley Temple', has also been officially selected for a handful of other European film festivals in the past few months since Daniela graduated from the prestigious Royal College of Art . 

In Daniela's own words, 'Shirley Temple is an abstract-narrative short about childhood and adulthood, escapism and sexuality'. To watch a glimpse of the film, click here.

We all love the film and are chuffed to bits for Daniela. Long may her festival run continue! 

Daniela has also just released her latest music video which has kindly been chosen as a Vimeo Staff Pick and has had a terrific write up in 'It's Nice That'

The track, 'As Luck Would Have It' by Tom Rosenthal, is given a Western-themed video in which It's Nice That describe as an 'audio-visual match made in heaven'.

Congratulations, Daniela!
